Here at Duchy Fairs our commitment is to spreading big love for shopping small and celebrating the value of buying independent. What do we mean by value? For us the value in shopping small is primarily about buying original, beautiful, interesting, artisan, small batch and quality products. You also have more of an insight into where, what you buy, comes from. Shopping small puts you in control of buying locally, ethically and in an environmentally friendly way. You're also supporting an indie trader or small business, something which you can feel good about and something that is even more valuable in these challenging times.
