For years we have dreamed of having our very own jewellery and gift shop. We have spent the last 12 years travelling the length and breadth of the country to exhibit at craft shows, country fairs, shopping events & markets. Much as we love the travelling and meeting lots of new people, it has always been a bit of a dream to have our own shop.
On Saturday 15th June, we opened the doors to our first bricks and mortar (well, it is a shipping container) shop. We will be based here for 12 weeks, maybe even longer.....who knows. Hatch is a place to eat, drink and shop in Manchester. It is a fantastic space, great for chilling out and watching the world go by and is located on Oxford Road in the city centre - right underneath the Mancunian Way. You can read more about Hatch here.
Our little shop is a converted shipping container....a couple of shops in as you enter on the right hand side.
We have been open for a couple of weeks now and are loving having our own shop. The ultimate dream would be to have a 'proper' bricks and mortar shop in the city centre (maybe even a few shops one day) - but with the extortionate costs of rent and business rates, this seems a distant dream.
So far, our shop is stocked with all our scarf designs, (you can also see these on our own website and in our NOTHS storefront) sterling silver and charm bracelets range. We will be introducing our full personalised range this week - starting with the 'Independent's Day' celebrations on Thursday and Friday this week. You will be able to get your own personalised, engraved jewellery while you wait! Starting at just £15 for plated bracelets and necklaces.
If you aren't based in Manchester, or can't get down to Hatch - you can, as always, find us online on one of sales channels there. Here is the full list :
On that note, seeing as it is our 7th wedding anniversary today, I will sign off and open that bottle of prosecco that has been chilling in the fridge. Time for relaxation, a nice glass of prosecco and some quality time with our three gorgeous kitties in the sunshine xxx
