My mate Holly is a woman on a mission.
After successfully founding and launching the popular monthly BS5 market in St. George; she has been inspired and wants to continue to champion small local businesses and food producers. It is with this in mind that she has decided to open her own convenience store, Butterfingers.
Holly wants to revive the community corner shop that she feels is missing from her local high street. Butterfingers will stock fresh fruit and vegetables, local meats and cheeses, plus condiments and kitchen cupboard essentials. Holly also plans to work with the local traders that have frequently made appearances at the BS5 market, so that their products are also available to buy. The space will also be available to hire, for private events, supperclubs and workshops.
A new shop means a lot of work, so Holly has launched her kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to help fund the project. She has just 30 days to raise £10,000 otherwise Butterfingers will not get supported. The crowdfunder will enable Holly to purchase chillers, deli counters and the all-important coffee machine for the shop, plus enable her to fit out the new kitchen.
Holly is hopeful that with the pledges, she will be able to create a wonderful and welcoming space; whereupon people can come and visit before or after work, at a time when suits them, and her opening hours will reflect this. Holly wants to provide Bristol residents with quality, delicious tasting produce from within the local community to highlight just how lucky we are in this city.
