Visionnaires Festive Fair showcases entrepreneurial diversity at CONEL’s Tottenham Centre.

Staff and students gathered at the second Visionnaires Festive Fair on 7 December at The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London’s (CONEL) Tottenham Centre.

The pop-up market, organised by the Visionnaires team, featured 25 independent sellers who have completed Visionnaires programmes.

The market included a wide range of goods and services and featured everything from home accessories to photography services. Customers were able to browse the various stalls and were entertained by drummers and music from students in Creative and Media courses.

In addition to showcasing their products, the Visionnaires Festive Fair allowed vendors to test the market, gain exposure, network and gather feedback on their goods and services. The market, which welcomed around 150 students, also offered sellers the opportunity to build a customer base and connect with community members.

Georgina Moore, who recycles textiles into clothing and home accessories with her brand Moore Revival, said: “I really enjoyed it too and talking to people about their ideas and their story, and to other students at the college. My stand is ever-changing and I’m always looking at different and new ways to display my product better. But mostly I love seeing you guys! There are some familiar faces there now which is great, such a nice little community and one I’m grateful to be part of.” When talking about her experience with Visionnaires, she added “You really kick-started my year in such a positive way, and gave me the shoulder rub that I needed to get me to keep going, and that I was doing ok so far. I feel I’ve come on leaps and bounds this year, but still have so much to learn.”
