The centre:mk shopping centre is preparing to welcome back the Handmade and Vintage market and craft bazaar.
The two day event Features 130 independent traders, and will showcase an enticing array of antiques and collectables, artists, unique collections and specialist crafts. For antiques that tell a story, look out for All Things Counter, selling an unusual range of hand curated pieces with a background story and some real history. For the home, there are the mother and daughter team trading as Vital Vintage Home, offering beautiful, quirky and unique pieces to add an individual style to your home.
For some outstanding craft, regulars Marmoset Designs have exquisite nature inspired, solid silver jewellery and hand finished quilting pieces as well as quirky and talented husband and wife artists of Tootique Boutique, who create everything in-house, including rocking horses and wacky lamps.
Centre Director Kevin Duffy said, “We are delighted to be able to bring back this fantastic indoor pop-up market. It is hugely popular with visitors and supports the livelihood of over a hundred independent traders, all of whom would have been affected enormously this year. We felt our ongoing support was critical this year as businesses try to get back to business as usual and are c=confident that our customers will support them by paying a visit”.
To ensure visitors can return with confidence centre:mk team and Handmade and Vintage organisers have been working on a new layout that gives space for social distancing and browsing with a one way system, Hand sanitiser stations and mandatory face coverings. The pop-up market will be open from 9am to 6pm on Saturday 5th September and 10.30am to 5pm on Sunday 6th September. For more information visit centremk.com
