The shop uses an innovative business model and partnership with The Ridings Centre to provide an outlet for 25 local craftspeople, including me! The shop has been beautifully fitted out and carries a great range of jewellery, clothes, accessories, prints, cards, toys… there really is something for everyone!
I will be doing my first shift in the shop very soon and am feeling very excited (and probably a little nervous too). There is a display cabinet with my work – I’ve stocked it with a variety of earrings and stacker rings for now, but will be introducing a lot more designs in the run up to Christmas. Any requests, anyone?
Hope to see you there soon!
