The Stalls

This is a quick post to introduce one of our fabulous stockists, 'The Stalls' of Harrogate. Run by Natasha Harris, MD of arts and crafts social enterprise OOBBAA, The Stalls is a bright, inspiring space carefully stocked with an eclectic mix of work from talented artists across Yorkshire.

Natasha is a talented designer/maker herself making retro inspired bags and jewellery. Her creativity and attention to detail are clearly evident in the shop itself as she creates thoughtfully individual displays for each artist's work. Cube shelving and glass cabinets compartmentalise contrasting styles but clever placement of large textiles and furniture as well as the 'racetrack' layout, create a flow that brings everything together and gives the shop it's signature feel. The large table and seating at the rear of the shop allow artists and customers to linger and chat whilst getting a tempting view of every item on sale.

The Stalls also hosts regular successful workshops in-house as well as a popular run of craft fairs. You can follow Natasha's blog and facebook page to keep yourself updated with what she is up to. To visit The Stalls use the Victoria multi storey carpark in the centre of Harrogate and take the 'One Arch' exit. The shop is on your immediate right as you exit and has a gorgeous sandwich shop next door.

Wychbury are delighted and proud to be associated with The Stalls and hope our relationship will long continue, happy shopping!
