Thank you to all our wonderful local creators who participated in SHOP-LOCAL 2020.
This is our third year we have held Shop-Local and we look forward to many more.
We are fortunate to have such creative people living all around us so we felt it was time to gather
their wares and create a gorgeous SHOP-LOCAL POP-UP for you all in the lead up to Xmas.
With over 20 local creators and entrepreneurs there will be a wonderful array of gift ideas to purchase, perfect for the person who's hard to buy for and in doing so, you'll support someone who lives close by.
The SHOP-LOCAL POP-UP is a collaboration between The STUDIO WORK SHOP and Create Local.
