Awesome day 1 of the @totallylocally #salefiverfest Thank you! I am literally a second-job-kitchen-table business so any custom from you fine people is a blessing! Keep ’em coming
Totally Locally Burntisland
The best first Fiver Fest day ever! The High Street was jumping, queues everywhere (some even before shops opened). A photographer got 200 advance orders for her 2021 calendar, the butcher got four hours sleep he was so busy with prep and our candle maker sold out online in 9 minutes
Claire Hines, Sale
We’re taking part for the first time (Sale) and so far it’s been brilliant! A couple of businesses sold out of their offer on the first day and others are posting photos of the orders they’re packing today. It’s great.

A whopping 40 plus snoods have been ordered in one day!!!! I hoped to keep the offer open over the fiverfest but I am only one woman ?? so will have to stop at some point! Thank you everyone for supporting small businesses! Today I went out and had a wander around our lovely town picking up some bargains from sunrise bakery, aye candy and the one one four, then a lovely lunch from The fix.

Thanks to Fiver Fest I have been in local shops today I’ve never visited before. will definitely be visiting them all again once I’ve made my xmas list and booked some time off work so I can be around when they are all open. Such lovely, local produce and some fantastic hyggeligt bits of loveliness.
Penarth Business Group
Fiver Fest definitely brought not only people out to shop, but got Traders working and pulling together. Fiver Fest acted as the catalyst that we all needed to stop worrying about who was in competition with whom, but how we could all help each other to survive. A new spirit of collaboration has been born and we hope to build on this.

Took part in @totallylocallyhorwich #fiverfest today by visiting local shops rather than chains. The great thing about fiver fest is you visit places you may not normally go to, see what brilliant items they have and end up spending more…win win #shoplocal #supportindie
