Are you a Professional Artisan Maker or Independent Trader?

We're looking to create a very carefully curated department store in the Ancient House, one of Ipswich's most iconic, heritage buildings.

Originally, it's believed that the Ancient House was a merchant house full of traders: the waterfront, the town centre and the whole of the town and its assets would have been connected via this 15th Century building.

Our idea is to bring the building back to life and reassume its original purpose.

And that's where you, as incredible professional traders, artists or artisan makers come in.

We're currently in negotiations to get this show on the road, but we have some pretty great plans in place. We'd love to hear from you if you like the sound of:

  • A department store for small businesses to gain a foothold in physical retail

  • A manned shop in a prime location

  • Open 7 days a week

  • Micro-pitches / shelf rental available

  • Short-term agreements available

  • Promotion and marketing supported

  • Working alongside established brands

Get in touch and we'll keep you posted with progress:
