The Bristol Pop-Up Shop

Initially set up by the Bristol Etsy Team in 2018, the Bristol Pop-Up Shop is now led by a dedicated collective of small business owners based in Bristol.

Our mission is to connect and support Bristol’s creative business community, with a Pop-Up retail outlet that feeds the local economy.

We first opened the doors in 2018 to our Winter Pop-Up Shop, in The Galleries Shopping Centre in Bristol. We brought together a show-stopping selection of high quality products, all locally designed and made by some of Bristol’s best small creative businesses. 

We've returned each year in the run up to Christmas, introducing new Bristol designers and makers to support as many local businesses as we can. We aim to keep the shop exciting and fresh for returning and new customers to the Pop-Up Shop.

To find out a little bit more about the beginnings of the Bristol Pop-Up Shop, you can read our blog post here.

Meet The Team 

The Bristol Pop-Up Shop began with 10 of us behind the scenes. We all run our own very different creative businesses in Bristol, so the shop was made possible by the full team effort coming together. Over the last few years some of us have dipped out and some have joined in again, with business commitments, babies and all sorts to contend with!

Rhea of Moon Fire Clay

Fascinated with the possibilities and unpredictability of smoke firing, Rhea creates one of a kind pieces that gain their markings from botanicals that are fired alongside the clay.

Inspired by nature and the beautiful array of plants growing around her in Bristol, all of the botanicals used in the firings are foraged or home grown, meaning that the firings are in tune with the seasons and vary throughout the year. 

Needless to say no two pieces are ever the same, and the practice and ritual are as integral to the work as the clay itself.

Warmlii is reviving the Swiss tradition of using cherry stones for therapeutic purposes by making eco-friendly thermal pillows that can be used hot or cold to alleviate aches and pains.

Bee started Warmlii in 2016 after realising that very few people in England knew about the incredible benefits of cherry stones. Having grown up in Germany, where they are a common thing, she decided it's time they find their way into more homes over here and replace those smelly old wheat bags!

All pillows are handmade in Bee's cosy home studio, sharing the warmth, comfort and healing, one pillow at a time.
