I am so excited about the new All our Own Crafts shop opening!!!!
Most of the crafters displaying are women running their own business from home, so this is your chance to support your peers.
It will also be a great chance to get some unique Christmas presents sorted!
Several of the local crafts-people in the shop have featured on a Guest Post at NHM over the years.
It’s so great to see that they are finally getting the recognition they deserve!
All Our Own Crafts
A new POP-UP craft shop in Festival Place, Basingstoke will launch with a grand opening on Saturday 11th October.
All Our Own Crafts, a project devised by Basingstoke residents Tracy Braybrook and Kate Donohoe after seeing the success of the All Our Own Work art gallery, gives local residents a unique chance to retail their crafts within the busy shopping centre.
The All Our Own Crafts Pop-Up Shop is situated opposite T K Maxx in the unit that was previously Millets.
Featuring the handmade work of over 20 local crafts-people, we will be displaying work from crochet to candles, children’s clothing, prints, glass, ceramics and much more.
We hope to be running workshops at our demo table so people can learn how to make their own crafts.
We will also have crayons and paper so Mums can browse whilst their little ones do some drawing. People are also welcome to pop in to do some knitting/ stitching etc and have a chat.
We are having a preview week from Monday 6th where people can come in and browse and buy.
We’ll be adding more stock over the week leading to our grand opening on Saturday 11th with lots of fun activities for all the family.
This will run from midday-5pm.
We have this unit for a three month period only but it will be perfect for people looking for handmade, unique gifts for Christmas.
Most of our crafters accept bespoke orders and are happy to create custom items.
Normal opening hours will be Monday to Saturdays 9am – 5pm and on Sundays 11am – 5 pm.
