Hello there, my name is Tracey and this is my daughter Rebecca. We have worked exceptionally hard to create ‘The Emporium’ and welcome you to read about our journey.
The Emporium began its life in 2015, in a small room in Mickley, Northumberland. Following lots of internal moves in our former building we were very happy to be able to move in August 2017 on to the High Street in Prudhoe, Northumberland. We loved our little shop but soon found that it was too small for what we wanted to do. When we heard of a unit coming up 7 doors up – we again took on the challenge and opened up on 9th May 2022 in 79 Front Street Prudhoe NE42 5PU. We now have a beautiful double fronted shop with space to allow a proper ‘browse’ and a lovely Craft Corner able to accommodate 6 students. We are also introducing our Tea Bar, serving Tea and Filter Coffee as well as pre-packaged biscuits to people attending our Craft and Chat, Workshops or Chatterbox Sessions.
We are filled to be brim with the work of Crafters, Makers and Artists throughout the UK, but predominantly 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 enjoy their work and have a ‘happy dance’ when they see their own businesses growing.
We have found over the years that our customers also enjoy our ‘chosen for you range’ this is a carefully sourced selection of items from further afield, but again mainly within the UK
