A number of small makers and producers from Shropshire and the Marches are enjoying a presence on the ‘high street’ thanks to the ‘Artisan Atrium’ that is open in Shrewsbury’s Darwin Shopping Centre until 21 December [2019].

A unique creative pop-up retail space, the  Artisan Atrium opened on 9 October in the former Boots Optician’s unit on the top level of the Darwin Centre.

The Atrium offers an ever-changing line-up of small businesses, from food and drink to homeware, clothing and artwork.

Until 21 December more than a dozen small businesses will be popping up in the Atrium, including:

  • Sarah Lister Art – creator of illustrations of family and pets.
  • Martha Loves – colourful and exciting childrenswear
  • Julian Road – modern country clothing for women
  • Mad March Hare – homeware
  • Victoria Elsmore – photographer specialising in family, baby and pet portraits.
  • Nikki Guy – mosaics
  • Sister Sister – badges and decorative ceramic hearts

There will also be food and drink businesses including Hobson’s Brewery, Powell’s Pies and Avenue Bakes.

Kevin Lockwood, Shrewsbury shopping centres manager, said:

“Every business is from Shropshire and the Marches so customers will be supporting local producers when they shop at the Artisan Atrium. Each offers something perfect for the festive season, and there’s plenty to discover, even if you’ve already made a visit.”

The Artisan Atrium is open Wednesday to Saturday and has been organised by Shrewsbury shopping centres and local marketing agency, Buy-From.
