East End Independents – Waltham Forest Edition

East End Independents – Waltham Forest Edition

Sam Brewster with his design for Waltham Forest.

Our third and final publication is designed by Sam Brewster and Matt Curtis. As with all our guides, to support community wealth our suppliers are Guild members located within the area that the map represents.  Our newest Waltham Forest chapter launched last year. Active members in the neighbourhood took part in a vote. The vote went in favour of working with our first-ever independent newspaper member for a targeted approach. Bang on time for Small Business Saturday tomorrow the Waltham Forest Echo distributed this beautiful map as their centrefold to 17,500 residents via cafes, pubs, community spaces, railway stations, places of worship, and other locations including our members Stone Mini Market and Armstrong Audio earlier this week.

In addition, and thanks to the generosity of Waltham Print who is sponsoring a print run we will have some maps printed to give away. The businesses that stock them will be listed via our social media soon.

The discerning consumer need not wait! Simply peruse the listings below for quality, distinctiveness and character. Everything you need for the party season from sustainable food cooperative Organic Lea to local barbers Cove E17, slow fashionistas Blackhorse Lane Ateliers and a bounty of retailers for ethical Christmas gifts that your loved ones will cherish.
