Curated Makers usually collaborates with the likes of John Lewis & Partners, M&S and Paperchase, to host Made Local Pop-Ups within their stores, alongside the major brands that we know and love.
COVID has seen an end to in-person pop-ups, so Curated Makers has launched a new event and community campaign called the Postable Pop-Up. Encouraging all small creative businesses to get involved from their homes and join via the hashtag #POSTABLEPOPUP on Instagram, to create a unique shopping experience for customers. Not only will the small business share images of their stalls and products, but they will also take to Instagram TV to introduce themselves and their products that they handcraft, showing the person behind the brand and the maker of the products available to buy.
British made products are more sought after than ever and with the logistics of mass-products products being imported from overseas being tested at this time, now more than ever is the opportunity for locally made, high-quality, small-batch products, real-time to shine, empowering the small business owners behind such brands.
Curated Makers was setup in November 2017 by Megan Jones, to champion Northern artists and makers, Megan has since adapted her approach to support to the wider small business community across the UK with national interest from both small business and large retailers, who seek this unique consortium of local products to feature within their stores as an exciting community driven event for their customers.
As soon as it is possible, the Made Local Pop-Ups will resume in person, but for now, it is time for the Postable Pop-Up with over 200 businesses taking part.
OPEN: 10am Saturday 1st August
CLOSE: 10pm Sunday 2nd August
Due to popular demand, the Postable Pop-Up will now return as a quarterly event. You can sign up to their newsletter for updates.
