I run a viking website selling jewellery, leather goods and drinking horns, and I understand that Kiev in the Ukraine has a strong link to Viking culture, and that there are a lot of suppliers of jewelery, leather crafts, metal crafts (such as axes), and other Viking style things.
I am planning a trip to Kiev from the UK early in September (probably the 6th-12th)
I would like to have someone (ideally based in Kiev) to do some research for me to help me get the most out of my trip and meet as many potential suppliers as possible.
I hope you can find out where there may be craft markets, where people who make handmade and custom items, including leather crafts, silver jewellery, horn products, viking axes and other viking themes items would be.
Also, please find local producers of such crafts, whether they are individuals or small companies. Create a list of these suppliers, with images of examples of the kinds of things they produce and their prices.
I would also want you to get in touch with the suppliers that you have identified and determine what wholesale prices they could provide, and potentially arrange a time for me to meet them early in September.
If you would be willing to, then I may also need some assistance from you in person when I visit. Possible to help translate if required, as I only speak English.
I am hoping to find someone who ha an interest in Viking culture, as in the future we will be looking for someone who can work as a virtual assistant and help us with the general operations of our online store.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
