Shrewsbury will be home to a unique creative pop-up retail space this winter.
The Artisan Atrium has opened in the former Boots Opticians unit on the top level of the Darwin Centre.
Showcasing the work of the region’s best makers and producers, this carefully curated selection of small businesses has been chosen for their gorgeous products, each of which would make the perfect gift.
Around twenty artisans will be involved at different times over the two months the space is open, so it’s well worth shoppers popping in each week to see the ever-changing line-up and discover some truly beautiful items – from colourful and eye-catching children’s clothing, to luxury chocolates, hand-printed homeware and personalised stationery and artwork.
Every business is from Shropshire and the Marches so customers will also be supporting local businesses.
Makers, designers and food producers can still secure a space in the Artisan Atrium, which is supported by the Marches Growth Hub Shropshire and will be open until mid-December, but will have to be quick as space is limited.
Anyone interested should contact Lindsey at Buy-From on 07854 170307.
