The Urban Crafters Shop is a partnership of three local makers -
Cheryl, Barbara and Anne Marie. We have secured a one year lease in the busiest part of town and want to nurture new talent and support the clever
experienced makers this region has in abundance.
Urban Crafters operated as a Pop Up shop in Dunedin from 2017.
Run by Cheryl, this Pop Up offered crafters the opportunity to
be in a central location at the busiest shopping times. With each passing year
the concept was developed and the leased premises grew in size to accommodate more Vendors. Cheryl has made the Pop Up a successful and much anticipated event.
Barbara has developed her small craft business Whimsy, which started
out in her garage 6 years ago, moved to a garage shop in Mosgiel, and then concentrated selling online and at markets. She has culminated precious skills online and in small business whilst raising her son.
Last year Barbara was invited to join Cheryl's venture and that new friendship sparked numerous statements starting with..."what if?" In September we will realise our separate dreams of operating a craft shop - together.
Anne Marie has come on board so we can split up the work hours and be open seven days, and still have time to make for the shop individually.
When you buy local you are supporting a local family.
