This is a new venture for me. As part of the empty shops Mary Portas initiative in Tiverton we have been running our own Artisan areas as a co-operative. I originally joined as a temporary member but very soon became a permanent one in our pop-up shop. It has been a lot of fun working with a new group of people, meeting and greeting shoppers and selling my pictures, bags and calenders at Christmas time. It is a lovely shop with lots of original gifts and yummy cakes! Drop by if you’re in Tiverton!
