Teenage Market arrives at Himley Hall

Unique gifts and home-made refreshments will be on offer at the first Teenage Market to be hosted at Himley Hall and Park this Sunday June 18 from 11am to 5pm.

Young entrepreneurs aged 12 – 22 will be selling their wares in the grounds of the former family home of the Earls of Dudley.  The Hall was the 1934 honeymoon destination for the Duke and Duchess of Kent and has attracted visits from Edward VIII and Queen Mary.

Teenage Markets give young people the chance to showcase their creative products for free.  Shoppers looking for early summer original bargains can explore 20 stalls.  Goods on offer range from arts, crafts and stationery, to jewellery, greetings cards, clothes and home-made cakes and biscuits.

One trader who is looking forward to the day is clothes seller 20-year old Jake Warrilow, from Wolverhampton.  He is attending a Teenage Market for the first time.

The University of Wolverhampton student said: “I have set up a clothes brand, Outta This Town.  I sell t-shirts, jackets and long-sleeved tops which I screen print with designs that are inspired by shapes, travel and pop punk music.”

Cllr Ian Kettle, cabinet member for planning end economic development added:

 “We established Teenage Markets to give young entrepreneurs like Jake the chance get hands-on experience in developing their own businesses. They learn the day to day skills needed to create, market and sell their products and get to do so in a safe and fun environment.  We hope that each time they attend an event they learn more about the selling process and build up their skills for the future.”
