A new pop-up shop, offering locally produced fashion, jewellery arts and crafts is set open in Blackpool.

Shop Boutique, which will be located next to Quilligan’s, on Church Street, adjacent to St John’s Square, will feature the works of 17 local and regional designers, manufacturers and artists led by trendy pop-culture fashion label Me&Yu.

There will also be products from natural soap maker, Soapure, the Crafty Cloth clothing label, fabric printing company Squirrel and Tiffin, glassmaker Collette Halstead and unique jewellery from Yappers Chappers Design.

The shop will be officially opened to the public at 6pm next Thursday (December 5) by the Mayor of Blackpool, Coun Eddie Collett and will remain open for two weeks only until Saturday, December 21.

Coun Fred Jackson, cabinet member for urban regeneration, said: “This is a really innovative way of bringing formerly vacant retail units back to life whilst showcasing the tremendous creative talent that exists in our community.

“The shop will add value to the shopping experience in the lead up to Christmas and all I can do is encourage shoppers to pay it a visit.”
