So I don’t if you’ve heard… you know I have been pretty quiet about it on social media lol. But Wren & Rye was part of the Curated Makers Handmade Pop Up Shop in Debenhams - on Market Street, Manchester.
A little bit about Curated Makers…. “Curated Makers was launched in 2017 to support small businesses; giving them new ways to sell their beautiful, handcrafted and unique products with new customers, that they may well not have come across before.” Read more here.
The Pop Up Shop started it’s Debenhams life on the Top Floor next to the lovely Maison Du Monde and was 29 makers strong… Over four weeks on and Megan from Curated Makers has made the #handmadepopupshop grow in size to an amazing 41 (and counting) makers and has moved to a premium shopping spot - THE WINDOW and sandwiched between Blow bar and Joes Juice!
It has been such an honour to be able to sell my work along such talented local makers and artists and in such a prime spot in Manchester town centre!
Here are a handful of the makers that have been a part of the Debenhams journey, I wish I had time to include them all - if you want to find out who else was part of the #handmadepopupshop head over to the Curated Makers Instagram Page here, or why not bob in tomorrow and celebrate our last day there!
One Mama One Shed
Albie and Sebastian
Wilton Street Craft Co
Darwin & Grey
Nicole Julia Designs
Like I said, to name a few!
Can we all just take a moment and give Megan a round of applause… I can’t even begin to work out how many days on the trot this girl boss has worked, how many ridiculously long days she has put in just so she can promote local talent and show off our makes to the best of their abilities!
The #handmadepopupshop finishes tomorrow at 8pm - SO DON’T MISS OUT!
