    Bristol Pop-Up Shop are excited to announce that applications are now open for local creative businesses to take part in their annual indie Christmas Pop-Up

    Preparing for its seventh year of trading in central Bristol, the Pop-Up Shop showcases the work and products of around 100 local artists, makers and designers each year. Applications are now open to trade with us this Christmas and we’d love to hear from you and find out all about your wonderful creative business. 

    The Pop-Up stocks a wide product range including handcrafted homeware, elegant stationery, adult and kids clothing, sustainable and organic products, fun craft kits, handmade ceramics, stunning jewellery and delicious edible delights that are a definite Christmas must-have.

     

    Our mission is to offer an exciting, unique shopping experience that truly makes a difference to both the local businesses we bring together and the customers who buy from them. Open for 6 weeks in the run up to Christmas, customers can shop 7 days a week for all their gifts and Christmas treats from a huge range of products by some of Bristol’s best creative businesses.

    “A fantastic opportunity to showcase my ceramics with a selection of the best of Bristol’s craftspeople. The mix of arts and crafts on sale was interesting, well selected and affordable. The Pop Up team were helpful, enthusiastic and well organised. Will be ready by my keyboard to reapply for 2024!” Clevedon Clay, 2023 participating business

     

    New Business Bursary

    After the success of its launch in 2022, The Bristol Pop-Up Shop is again offering 5 New Business Bursaries, to encourage applications from local makers and designers new to selling and that haven’t worked with us before. 

    Co-Founder of The Bristol Pop-Up Shop Jodie Mundy says:

    We would love to reach new businesses, especially those who might face financial barriers to join a project like The Bristol Pop-Up Shop. We hope that the New Business Bursary and additional business support at such a key time of year for trading will be a welcome help to some new local creative businesses.

    The bursary offers a discounted entry fee for the shop and additional business support through the festive season. They are offering one-to-one support to help new businesses join the Pop-Up Shop project, gently guiding them to confidently sell their own products in a retail setting.
