Beth Whitehall has been making beautiful fairy dresses for over 15 years and selling them at markets and festivals around the country. When she heard that The Open Market was due to re-open in June, 2014, she was desperate to finally have a permanent home for her fairy fashions but she didn’t have the capital needed to start-up her business. One afternoon, she happened to come across information about how to apply to be a contestant on Deal or No Deal, and she thought “why not?” And, much to her surprise, she was accepted!
I never imagined that I would be able to fund my business by appearing on a game show but I’m so pleased to have been given the opportunity. Already Unit 22 is busy and orders for fairy dresses and coming in all the time! – Beth Whitehall
Beth is appearing on the show throughout August and she is the player on the September 4th episode. Watch and see how today’s proud owner of Unit 22 even manages to get Noel Edmonds into one of her fairy dresses!
Unit 22 is now open. Beth and Charlotte make beautiful, hand-made fairy dresses and also offer a lovely range of locally produced fashion and accessories for girls and women.
