What is Petworth Pop Up!!
Petworth Pop Up was set up in April 2021 by Cathy & Georgie – both having and still have their own retail space – Cathy runs Maggie & Belle – a Gift & Interior Boutique and Georgie who ran Kissed by Betty a gift an interior boutique and now runs a small business Consultancy GK Creative Consultancy.
In both their retail time and still to date - they provide opportunity selling local makers work ranging from jewellery, ceramics, art and much more.
With the change in retail purchasing and the increased need for a consumer shopping experience they came up with the idea of running local Pop-Up Market in the historic town of Petworth. Inviting local craft makers from in and around the West Sussex area to sell and showcase their work.
Bringing so many makers under one beautiful roof provides a wonderful experience for shoppers to come and purchase and pursue through a whole range of interesting and independent makers whilst providing that all important space for makers to showcase and sell their products.
The markets have grown rapidly over the past 6 months with-it now expanding to 2 floors in Petworth’s beautiful town hall as well as working with Chichester town council and taking part in a new market hosted every 3 months in the city centre.
With the business growing so rapidly we are excited to launch our very own unique online platform – where makers can subscribe and be featured on our very own website – This will be a space where they can advertise their own web platform and selling sites reaching more and more potential customers and retail spaces to sell and showcase their work.
We are both incredibly passionate about the creative market and working closely with our makers to support them in to making their businesses grow!
Small businesses like the ones we use are changing the way we shop in the UK, They are a huge part of supporting the Economy and with now more than ever are thriving and we are so very honoured to be part of it.
