Vender of the Week: Watershed

Jake Patterson and James Wright have long loved the ocean and the outdoors — and in 2012, they turned that passion into their way of life by opening the Watershed concept store in Newquay, Cornwall. With their original location, Jake and James focused on bringing brands and products to their community that hadn’t been available in the UK and then naturally progressed to designing and producing their own clothing and items.

Here, unique retailer Kanuka Tea shares how they set-up Vend, Deputy and iZettle on iPad to run their store – with help from local partner KRCS.  After drinking ‘boring’ builder’s tea for years, construction business owner John Hessler became captured by the more exotic varieties of loose leaf tea when he was introduced to them by his brother-in-law. “They were beautiful, but there was nowhere in London where you could buy them,” says John.
