Here is a bit about all of our spaces so you can choose the best one for your business.

made in ashford outside

We have spaces that are permanent and fixed so you wont need to bring in your own display furniture, just props to add height and individuality to your space. We tailored sections of the shop to suit different creators needs such as slatline for clothing. Most excitingly we have a work station so that we can create whilst we are in store!

Other important info

A license to trade in store is 3 months min* then monthly rolling after. Your rent for your license is paid directly to the council a month in advance. The commission is deducted from your takings which will have a monthly accounting period (to work out your commission based on how much you work) paid to you from the shop.

Days working in store can still be taken as half days (if we can find someone to take the other half day) or whole days. You will need to undertake training before you can work in store (it takes approx 2 hours).

We do lots of fun things in store like regular meet ups, help support each other. We have window takeovers where your biz can takeover one of our windows for your own super display. We run workshops upstairs to help develop and share your skills if you wish to. We even do live window demonstrations. There is a lot going on in our little shop and a huge amount of support and opportunity.

There is a limited number of space available and we want to maintain high quality products & businesses as well as a good variety in the shop. If you are interested then you will need to fill out a short application form.

*Please note if you wish to trade in store for December you will also be required to stay until February 28th.
