Picture it as a highly curated artisan market, situated within a shop environment, open 7 days a week, offering the convenience of shopping small and local, within an established department store.
The Made Local Pop-Up provides the perfect shopping opportunity to treat loved ones to an extra special one-off gift, add a unique touch to your home or dare we way it…start that Christmas shopping extra early by supporting small businesses, now more than ever. With Liverpool artwork, hand-sewn decorations, wooden flowers, screen-printed Liverpool map hankies, upcycled tie roses and more, you will be blown away by the local talent.
Curated Makers launched in 2017 by Megan Jones, who started the concept on a market-stall herself representing 4 makers at a time…fast-forward to now hosting pop-ups with over 25 makers at once. Curated Makers aims to provide small, local, independent makers a platform to showcase their products within prime retail spaces and to create opportunities never known before, for the maker, the retailer, and the customer.
Speaking of the collaboration, founder of Curated Makers, Megan Jones, said: "We are delighted to return to Liverpool and to showcase the talent of our local artists. The makers involved and I, are thrilled to be here for six-weeks. The opportunity to have short-term access to pop-up within John Lewis & Partners, Liverpool ONE, was an aspiration when I launched the brand back in 2017. To now be able to offer this opportunity to over 25 local businesses, is a real privilege.
If you want to support small business but the weather is against you or you struggle to find the dates of local artisan markets, then look no further as we’ll be in store 7 days a week until 18th October, open the same hours as John Lewis. It’s definitely worth a visit. "
