Welcome


THE EMPORIUM ‘Crafters Emporium’ was established in April 2015
Hello there my name is Tracey and this is my daughter Rebecca, we have worked exceptionally hard over the past 4 years to create ‘The Crafters Emporium’ and welcome you to read about our journey.

The Emporium being its life in 2015 in a small room in Mickley.   Following lots of internal moves in our former building we were very happy to be able to move in 2017 on to the High Street in Prudhoe Northumberland.   We now have a beautiful shop with a wonderful reputation of being a well loved Gift Shop filled to the brim with the work of Crafters Makers and Artists throughout the UK but prominently the North East.  Our Customers love being able to know who created their purchase and know that with every purchase made they are supporting small businesses and helping Crafters Makers and Artists enjoy their work and have a ‘happy dance’ when they see their own businesses growing.

Following our move we now offer a Dry Cleaning and an Alteration Drop and Collect Service. We are also Agents for Wish and Avon Cosmetics

Why do we do it
Beginning as a home based Crafter myself allowed me to understand the needs of fellow Crafters, Makers and Artists.  The need for having somewhere affordable to rent space and show their crafts, whilst allowing them to enjoy their day to day lifestyle and not have to factor in working in the shop.
How do I join and how much will it cost?
Rents start from only £12.50 a month rising to £20.00 per month dependent upon the size of space that you need.  To join drop us a line via our contact form and give us a brief outline of who you are, where you are located and of course what crafts you enjoy.
