Most definitely the best online pop up I have done so far! Can’t wait for Christmas. Brilliant number of new customers and fantastic service from the organisers”. Giftpop Boutique


“The Online Summer Fair could not have been a more inclusive virtual environment.  Warm, friendly, supportive and fun, Polly does 110% what she says on the tin.  She successfully co-ordinated a group of like minded businesses by passionately caring that everyone got sales.  To ensure this she stepped up and out beyond what we ever could have imagined to enable anyone lacking confidence in their tech abilities, website, social engagement or business and nurtured them into performing.  We couldn’t have asked for a better two months, we were up on our June / July sales of 2019 and got to work collectively with a wonderful selection of people and brands.  This is a fair of not just the here and now but the future, watch out 2021 organisers this will be the new norm and Polly will be leading it.” The Holiday Shop London


“Polly’s support, generosity and warmth made this fair an absolute pleasure to be part of. From sharing her skill set to building a community of talented independent business owners and tireless promoting every single brand to ensure they succeeded, Polly exceeded my expectations. I’m so grateful for my lovely new customers and followers, thank you OSF!”  Handcrafted by Harriet


“OSF is not simply a marketplace of gifts, treats and gorgeousnesses. It’s a community of small businesses who know their trades, are often designer makers, always experts in their fields but, most importantly, friends! Polly has brought us together with patience, a smile, chat, enormous marketing prowess and some pretty darned clever ideas.  If you’re going to join up somewhere to find Christmas custom and feel like you’re being heard and treated fairly sign up! It’s a no brainer @Chiswick_Gift_Company


“The Online Summer Fair is a fabulous community of independent businesses,  and designer makers fantastically orchestrated by Polly.  Not only is Polly super organised she is a marketing expert offering valuable advice and the support she gives ALL the members is second to none. I honestly couldn’t recommend her Online Fairs more highly.  Roll on the Online Christmas Fair!”   Annabel’s Bazaar

“Felt so lucky to be part of the incredible ONLINE SUMMER FAIR – Polly is Superwoman! It really felt like being a part of a great big family.” Fino Olive Oil


We came across the Online Summer Fair by sheer luck, and what a good job we did. Polly was amazing with the level of work she contributed to the whole event and the support she gave all of the traders. As a business who relies so heavily on events as part of our turnover, the whole Coronavirus situation has forced us to think differently and this event has certainly helped with that. We had a number of sales across the two months which we were delighted with, and to cap it all off we have picked up a valuable trade connection too, which definitely wouldn’t have happened without this amazing event. We can’t wait for the Christmas Edition and encourage anyone looking for an interactive virtual event to look no further!”  Robert & Lea Darling, Burtree Puddings


‘The Onlinesummerfair was a fantastic event throughout June and July. Brilliantly organised by Polly Horton, who galvanized over 50 brands to come together, share ideas, learn tricks of the trade and have a great fun community spirit too. Polly was constantly promoting the event and the brands and helped us to join forces with other brands to do collabs. It really was a tremendous event that we felt so lucky to have been part of. We gained lots of new followers and had some great sales. It would have been half the event, had we not had the positive energy from Polly.’ Talolo Boots


“A belated huge thank you for all you did for the Online Summer Fair, it was a great experience and lovely to be part of such a fantastic collaboration of dynamic businesses.  You seriously went over and above all things in order to help us all and to make sure that the exposure that we had really counted in what is a very competitive market.”  What a Pickle
