Creative & Associate Membership items:

Facebook group - This C&A members only group is the fastest way to keep up to date with tips, trends and news. We offer support, advertise events you can take part in and we all socialise and encourage each-other. We also cover topics in our weekly update emails but most news will hit the Facebook group first.

Video promotions - We present live videos where we showcase and sell products. This is a very popular way to reach customers and in our first 6 months alone, some videos received over 13,000 views. Members get 2 video appearances a year free*

Live links - As a member you get a free live link on our website to your choice of either a website, online shop or social media page. This is placed on your mini profile listing.

Space at events - We appear at various events around East Anglia and are looking to expand across the UK. We offer spaces at these events where the Duck in Boots team will take your items and sell them on your behalf. We offer a selection of space sizes from a simple box to a whole table. Only members are offered the opportunity of space at these events. They are first come first served though!

Mini profile - A mini profile is pretty much what it says on the tin. We create a mini profile for you on our website along with an image, a little bio and live link which is a great way of allowing customers to really connect with the fact that your business is not a faceless cooperate.

Social media promotion - As part of your membership we offer social media promotion. This includes both Instagram and Facebook as a minimum but may also include twitter and other sites. The promotion will be solely about you and will include a link to you and your business on our website ensuring that customers can find out all about you and how to purchase your products. We promote each member at least once a month!

Retail Space - This refers to when we occupy premises. Although we are not in premises at this moment. We endeavour to occupy premises again in the future. Members get notified first of any retail opportunities and get a discount on the spaces available.

Your own page and listings - Members get their own page on our website and feature in our virtual high-street too! Your page can have a bio, social media links, an email me button and up to 500 products to sell for just 15% commission. We manage the website, but you get access to upload and amend your products. The commission just covers payment charges and goes towards site maintenance as well as our charitable causes.

We also offer support and advice such as changes in legislation and what trends are emerging. You also have access to book with a business advisory for more in-depth 1:1 support with Kate Kelly The Business Plumber. Before applying, please read our terms and conditions HERE.

These T&C's cover our entire operation including that of physical retailing in stores. For online only selling, some parts may seem irrelevant but do try to read through them all.

Retail Space

The affordable high-street solution

Who wouldn't love to see their products available on the high-street? Thing is, it is just not an affordable way of retailing. We get that. That is why our spaces offer you affordable options starting from £3.75 a week! 

Our most popular spaces work out at £1 a day but we have spaces to support all budgets from your own shop units to a simple basket. Even better, there are no card charges so you keep 100% of your sales. If you are in interested in space with us, then please complete our application form.
