Learn more about us:
My name is Babsi Lapwood and I started TW Artisans as I was looking to share a retail space myself to sell my furniture and soon realised that so many other people were looking for the same opportunity... TWA has become a platform to help small businesses grow to the next stage, i.e. share a retail space that is affordable.
The aim is to become a destination point for shoppers to buy unique and locally produced items.
We are currently hosting between 25- 30 different Artisans and Artist and customers come to us for our wide range of quality and locally produced goods.
We have started running Workshops and are hiring our premises out to people running their own.
As we are a collective we expect everybody who is part of TWA to advertise each other actively on their social media.
Our prices start from £70 per month with a 3 month initial commitment and a one month notice period thereafter.
This monthly management fee includes:
Sale staff on the premisses, who will take your sales as well as look after your stock, so you don’t need to be present.
Listing on our Online Store
Sales will be transferred weekly
Weekly stock level updates via email
Promotions via Blogs and Social Media, mailing lists and other local marketing channels
We are holding monthly events throughout the year to raise more awareness and help us grow and push for more sales, as well as promote on social media and leaflets through letterboxes and various other promotions - my partner, James Gambrill has a marketing company and is helping us to spend the money we have allocated for promotions in the most cost effective way.

We have joined “Tunbridge Wells Together” and attending several other social networking meetings to raise our TWA's profile in Tunbridge Wells.
We are currently in the process to produce our first TWA A5 magazine to advertise all current Artisans/Artists (with a 3 months shellfire), which we will distribute in letterboxes to targeted properties. We will also send digital copies to our database and keep a copy on our website. www.tunbridgewellsartisans.co.uk .
The total cost for each retailer currently is £15 a month for a full page or £7.50 for half a page per month and would be added to your monthly rent.
