Meet the team: Alana runs baby and kids markets in East Fife and West Lothian
After looking into becoming a franchisee, we decided as a family to go ahead in the hope that it would give me more flexibility with working hours. My husband already does two jobs on chaotic shifts, and I am a teacher 4 days a week. I can do Mum2mum Market organisation in the evenings when my daughter is asleep and I’m really enjoying learning about running my own business.
Sale day is a real family event for us! I do the admission desk and chat to people as they come in, my husband helps people unload their cars and then takes lots of photos. My Dad runs the café, and my mum and Rosie go round checking if anybody needs help with anything!
I also love that Mum2mum Market supports the local community, and local businesses. It’s different to some other similar sales because we can have children’s activity providers running taster sessions, photographers doing mini photo-shoots, we often have charities joining us free of charge, and I’ve even got the local council offering free car seat safety checks in conjunction with the fire service at my next event. This brings people together and turns it into a real Community Event, and not just a sale! I’m really excited about watching the sales continue to grow!
