Made By Tottenham, Haringey’s platform dedicated to supporting the local creative community, opens its first ever pop-up shop on Tottenham High Road.
40 independent makers, artists and designers have been selected to stock the shop. There will be unique, original and thoughtful products at affordable prices (from £2 to £150, with the majority of items under £30), including postcards, prints, children’s books, toys and clothes, fashion items, jewellery and homeware. The pop-up shop will be located at The Trampery, a focal point for entrepreneurship and creativity in Tottenham.
Much more than a retail experience, the Made By Tottenham Pop-Up Shop features a programme of creative workshops led by the same makers stocked within the shop (comic drawing, wrapping paper making, monoprinting and more). You may also get a complimentary glass of mulled wine when visiting. Come and Meet-the-Makers at our show and tell event on the 26th November between 12:00 and 18:00. Follow Made By Tottenham on Instagram @madebytottenham or sign up to our newsletter to hear about special events.
The Made By Tottenham Pop-Up Shop offers residents and visitors the opportunity to buy unique gifts whilst supporting their local creative community and high street. All products are designed or produced in the borough, which contributes to circular economy principles and lower carbon emissions.
