Open Door is excited to be looking ahead to the festive season by launching its very first Community Christmas pop-up shop on Monday 27 November, which will be open until the New Year. You can also browse the collection with a mulled wine and mince pie at their shopping evening on Wednesday 29 November.
The Open Door café space will host a marketplace of locally sourced goods so that visitors can support local this Christmas whilst giving back to the community.
Everyone is invited to come and browse a selection of cards, decorations, produce & gifts from local artisans – perfect for gift buying, supporting both small and local business as well as Open Door.
The Community Christmas pop up shop will feature local artisans and makers such as Jackie Bennett’s needle felting, Maria Oliver from Boxmoor Yoga with her children’s yoga books, local honey from SpinneysHarvestHoney, Bergin & Bath’s crafty kits, The Chiltern Recipe Book, crochet items from Rima Barrett of crochetlaneboutique, NATRL cosmetics and lots more!
Sarah Osborne, Exhibition Manager at Open Door said:
“We’re excited to be bringing a new offering to the community this Christmas with our pop up shop. As a creative based organisation, it’s important that we support local makers and artists, and we can’t wait to show customers what we have in store. The shop adds another element to Open Door’s community café where everyone is welcome to come and be warm, eat and drink in exchange for a donation of any amount. We look forward to showing you our shop and showcasing the amazing talent we have locally!”
Normal opening times are Mon-Fri 10:30am-3:30pm and Sat 10:30am-1pm.
