Sweet Salone pop-up market

07.06.21

Last Friday and Saturday we hosted our second (pop-up) market. After the success of our ‘get-ready-for-Christmas-market’ last November, we decided to host one more market before the rains would start.

Both Humu and Foday from the Lettie Stuart Pottery Center joined us in Freetown and sold many of their new products (more pictures can be found on the Instagram page of the Lettie Stuart Pottery Center). Also Yasmin Metz-Johnson (Yasmin Tells) had her postcards on sale, and Uman Tok was present on Friday to sell their reusable menstrual hygiene kits.

For those that reside in Freetown and could not make it to the market, you are always welcome to shop at our office on weekdays between 10:00 – 16:00 where we have all products in stock. For people that do not live in Sierra Leone, you are welcome to shop online at www.aurorawebshop.com.
