An empty shop in Accrington is the destination for Pop Up North.
Set to open in early September on Blackburn Road we’re looking for more online craft retail start-ups to take part. The shop will open initially every weekend until Christmas and will be a boost for artists and crafters by giving them their first taste of the high street, we hope it will help create the high street entrepreneurs of the future!
“Our shop complete with a tea room will provide a new shopping experience and we hope a meaningful boost to the local economy.”
The pop-up shop will run every weekend and will have availability for anyone wanting to dip their toe in the water and run a pop-up tearoom, and spaces for three stalls downstairs and ten upstairs. We also have space for crafters who wish to rent cube space(these cubes are staffed so we look after your stall allowing you to carry on making and baking etc). We also have wall spaces.
If you are interested in taking part in Pop Up North, please get in touch.
Part of the ethos of this "Pop UP" is to share experiences and success and we meet every third Tuesday from 6.30pm.
This is a social occasion where we sit and make stuff or just chat.
If you see someone doing something interesting then go and ask them what they're up to. It's a really cool way to skill swap, get top tips and hear about the handmade world and local craft fairs.
Tea, coffee and biccies available but please feel free to BYOB, wine and nibbles (glasses and plates provided). Look forward to meeting you and updating you on the great things planned for our new Creative pop up hub!
