Hello, we're Elly and Harry.
We're a couple with a love for handmade pieces, and supporting independent makers, and together we run a small shop in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
Everything that we sell has been carefully chosen by us, with a focus on design, function and simplicity. Our designers and makers have been selected for their focus on craftsmanship, and attention to detail. They are truly knowledgable and passionate about their process; producing high quality, considered pieces (typically by hand) on a small scale.
We believe in slow-living and taking a thoughtful approach to buying – choosing to buy fewer, well-considered, products that have been made to last and that will be cherished for years to come. Everything that you see, we would genuinely love to have in our home (and in most cases do have) or would love to gift to others.
We choose, and encourage others, to 'shop independent' allowing small makers and businesses the opportunity to grow. We aim to make this more accessible by collating quality products that have been on a small scale with care, and with respect to the environment, that you won't find readily available elsewhere.
We also use our space at the shop to host a range of workshops in our downstairs space, run by both the makers that we stock and by other local creatives.
We hope that you like our selection of prodcusts and workshops, and welcome any feedback or suggestions for other independent makers or small brands that you would like to see here in the future.
Elly & Harry
