The last one out turns off the light!

It's with great sadness that we announce the closure of our little shop in Wood Street Indoor Market. From the end of July we'll be packing up and moving on to what we hope will be greener pastures.

After 6 months of trading we've come to the conclusion that it's just not the right location for us!
We've had fun, met tons of really nice people, made some new friends and managed to introduce a few new consumers to hand made shopping by selling the fabulous designer maker goods we've had on offer!

Feed back in the majority has been positive so Craft Guerrilla know that this type of shop is something we'll want to do again.... heck we WILL do it again!!! That's a promise.

I'm still in love with the idea of being a "shop keeper" of all things hand made so if all goes to plan we'll be back very soon!
Having a studio, retail shop and a "Craft-Tea Shop" with sewing machine hire, serving home baked cake and lashings of tea is something we will relaunch in a brighter, bigger space... plus having a bigger shop area would be lovely too as we have so many talented makers and were always pressed for space in Wood Street!
Fingers crossed we'll pop up soon in a another place with better foot fall and better location.

In the meantime we'll still be operating as usual hosting our monthly DIY Craft Nights, Crafternoons and working with museums, galleries, hosting other crafty events and private parties! It basically means we're back to basics and doing what we were before having the shop so we're still around.

Thank you all for your support and for all your kind words, it wasn't easy but we think all in all this is the best decision we can make at present.

Shop opening times and days until closure: Friday and Saturday only from 10.30 am to 5.00 pm
We close for good on Friday the 27th of July.
