There’s lots going on at Bramley Community Shop! The good folks at Bramley Elderly Action provide an update on some interesting initiatives:
In the run-up to Christmas, Bramley Community Shop is supporting local enterprise by offering shelf-space to sell new or ‘upcycled’ products in return for a donation of time to help in the shop.
It’s a great way to test out your work and reach a local market without a big outlay. We hope it will highlight creative talent in the area.
Bramley Community Shop, at Bramley Shopping Centre, is also supporting Bramley Lawn to develop an Affordable Christmas Market on Sunday 27 November (10am-12pm). The market aims to shine a light on local talent and encourage people to share skills and shop local.
Come and buy your Christmas presents from one of our local stallholders and learn some of their tricks of the trade.
You can also make special, simple and affordable gifts yourself, with ‘upcycling’ tips from local makers and the team at Bramley Community Shop, who’ll be bringing some pre-loved treasure to use.
If you are working from home, if you make or design brilliant, affordable products or services, or if you have a skill or hobby that you’d like to share, please get in touch about a free stall.
Bramley Community Shop is looking for volunteers to work in the shop for as little as two hours a week.
This is particularly rewarding for anyone interested in vintage goods and clothes, or who likes meeting a lot of people.
Please drop in for a chat with Kirsty, or get in touch with Maureen, our Volunteer Co-ordinator, if you would like to know more.
The proceeds from Bramley Community Shop support the work of Bramley Elderly Action – working to make later life fulfilling in Bramley, Swinnow and parts of Stanningley.
