Power of Positive Shopping
Celebrating talented artisans, creatives and local manufacturers in museums, shops and department stores.
We’re working hand in hand with buyers, curators and store owners to bring artisans and heritage manufacturers to customers. Exciting POPS collaborations are now lighting up across the British Isles!
Artisans take to the streets!
Imagine the pleasure of popping to a local store to browse handcrafted ceramics by a ‘rising star’, select a rug hot off a Somerset loom or slip on a dress made from organic cotton. Blue Patch’s talented members create wonderful treasures and we want shoppers to experience them first hand.
A burst of joy
POPS is part of the retail revolution, redefining the pleasures of local shopping. It’s hard to beat browsing with your bestie, trying stuff on, feeling real quality. Combine with a chat over coffee, the chance to participate in workshops or enjoy a performance? The high street is back, it’s creative and we’re part of this vibrant ‘social shopping’ experience!
POPS supporters include The Collaborative Store in Marylebone, Hoos in Glasgow and the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery. We’ve also created our very own ‘travelling’ Sustainable Department Store, so the Blue Patch Collective are heading across the British Isles to museums and public art spaces.
