Hello comrade <<First Name>>

A team of our intrepid comrades staffed a week-long stall at Sheffield’s Xmas market, starting from November 30. This was a chance to road test our range of new merchandise that you will have seen popping up on the site. The results were great on the sales front; even better on the political, which is the bigger plus. One of the stall comrades gave his impressions in an email to us:

“It was actually quite remarkable. At lunch times, groups of young kids from the local schools were turned loose for an hour or so. All you heard during that hour or so as they passed the stall were variations on ‘Oh. My. God - Jeremy Corbyn t-shirts!’ That or the bearded one’s name droned to that ‘
7 nations army’ riff... Ooh Jeremy Corbyn!”

The sky-high recognition factor for Corbyn was pretty much ubiquitous and the political response was 80%+ positive, comrades reckoned. Now this is anecdotal feedback from our own politically partisan hawkers, of course.  But it’s backed up by the sales. We ran totally dry on the following products (don't worry, we have since restocked!):
  • Our new working class and progressive movement calendars. Shamefully, I must confess I was initially sceptical about the whole calendar concept. Was the prototype slick? Yup. Chocker with Interesting and inspiring info? No doubt. Well designed? No, sexy is a better term … Still I wasn’t a convert. But what do I know? It flew off the shelves and we had to re-order sharpish for the online Xmas rush.
     
  • The Corbyn Xmas wrapping paper. Snapped up by people who wanted to send prezzies to lefty friends and family members who would appreciate the politics of the packaging … and to rightwingers who would be (at least) mildly infuriated by it. 
     
  • Jeremy Corbyn mugs. Other mugs we have – Einstein, Malcom X, Sylvia Pankhurst, the Banksy images, etc – did well. The man’s mug – even without his actual mug on it – ran out sharpish, however.
In its own small way, this show of enthusiasm on one small stall in the centre of Sheffield reflects the paradigm shift in politics; a significant move left by a whole section of contemporary British society. And it’s intergenerational. A lot of young people were enthusiastic shoppers with us; but a high percentage of them also gave us variations on the theme of ‘I really like Corbyn; but my dad/mum/uncle/aunt really loves him and that’s who the present is for …’ Exciting times, for comrades of all ages!
