In conjunction with Just a Card – Indie week let’s help promote Fermanagh’s Artists, Makers, Independent Shops & Small Businesses.
JUST A CARD is a grassroots campaign on a mission to encourage people to buy from artists, makers, independent shops and small businesses by emphasising that every sale, even just a card, is vital to their prosperity and survival.
JUST A CARD Indie Week encourages people to support, value and buy from independent businesses during the crucial Christmas retail period, which is more important than ever this challenging year.
Fermanagh Artists, Makers, Independent Shops & Small Businesses
Here’s a list of great local Fermanagh businesses you can buy from this Christmas. If you would like to be added to this list please contact me with your details or else you can message me on Instagram or Facebook @thequietwilderness.
Please feel free to share or copy this list for your own use so that we can promote Fermanagh’s small local businesses!
JUST A CARD Indie Week Instagram Challenge prompts
The prompts are very easy to follow and specially designed to encourage you to share what you do, how you feel and promote your work and others with pride and confidence. You don’t need to be an artist, maker, independent shop or small business owner to take part. Everyone who values this message is welcome to join in.
MONDAY 23RD NOVEMBER: YOU
Post a selfie or image of your place. Make sure you’re wearing your JUST A CARD pins or show our logo. Tell the world who you are and what you do.
TUESDAY 24TH NOVEMBER: JUST A CARD
Make an image using the JUST A CARD logo, and the @justacard tag. Encourage people to support and join our campaign. Use the image often, even after Indie Week. If you’re not feeling creative (go on!), then use one of ours from our website.
Tell people about the events, shows etc you’re part of. Encourage them to visit and buy from them. Share your own websites too, especially if you’re new to selling online due to current circumstances.
