Women’s History Month & International Women’s Day

March is Women’s History Month, and with 2018 being the 100th anniversary of the Suffragettes we’re putting the spotlight on our women traders at the market.

“I come from a long line of strong business women whose motto was never to settle for anything. My great grandmother was the proprietor of D.E Powell, a butcher shop in this same market! Now, 3 generations on, I’m continuing the tradition with my own stall, but in a very different field!” – Charlotte, Brontosaurus

“To make a business work, you have to choose something you’re passionate about” – Rekha Rani, Rani’s Brow and Eyelash Lounge

“I’ve been in the market all my life, as this is a family stall. I love it in the market, you meet people from all walks of life here and there’s a lovely family vibe between the traders, with so much banter and fun. My grandfather handed the reigns over to me 10 years ago and some people still can’t get over a woman running a hardware stall! But most customers embrace it and I’ve got a great team by my side” – Nicola, Tom Whitehouse Ltd

“Previously, I spent far too long working in a male dominated business where I felt undervalued, causing my confidence and self-worth to hit zero!
So I decided to go it alone and open Jemz in Swansea Market, selling jewellery, accessories and Italian knitwear. It’s been 6 years and I haven’t looked back! I’m surrounded by honest, happy people every day. I now look forward to coming to work and to a wonderful new experience each day. I would urge any ladies out there to listen to their hearts and make changes if unhappy in the workplace. We spend 8 hours a day at work and we all deserve to be happy. We are all worth it!” – Julie, Jemz

For International Women’s Day, we thought we’d celebrate by bringing some of our women traders together! Skilled craftswomen, chefs & bakers, beauticians, seamstresses and innovative entrepreneurs all of these ladies have made their mark on our market.

Spotlight on a trader: Carta & Bost

Swansea Market’s newest stall, Carta & Bost is your new postal packaging emporium! Stocking a wide range of supplies for all your shipping requirements, you’ll find them at Stall 8 (simply turn right as you enter the Market through the Oxford Street entrance).

They offer lots more besides, including an ever-growing stationery range, gifts, beautiful gift boxes/wrap and postage stamps.

Almost everything they sell is sold individually or by the metre meaning you only ever pay for what you actually need.

Call them on 07455 321079.
