First line up of retailers announced for Artisan Market 2018

Posted 27th February 2018

Application to the first intu Milton Keynes Artisan Market of the year has closed, and now the list of confirmed independent businesses exhibiting on Saturday 3 March can be revealed.

24 retailers will showcase a range of independent handmade products for shoppers at intu Milton Keynes, just in time for Mother’s Day

The traders exhibiting at the first of four markets this year, include Tabitha Mary, a digital print designer who is inspired by the railway posters of the 1930’s, Baby Dee & Me  who specialise in slogan tees and monochrome baby clothes inspired by music, The Room Alive  which as the name suggests, creates beautiful cushions, wallpaper and prints for the whole family to bring your home alive. Plus, making a comeback from a very popular 2017, White Rabbit Apparel will be trading at the market and will have their up-cycled must have fashion on offer, as well as Nutmeg Wall Stickers who will also be trading again with beautiful art for the home.

The full list of exhibitors will be revealed on the intu Milton Keynes website.

Kirsty McGiff, marketing manager at intu Milton Keynes said, “We have been overwhelmed with the number of local traders wanting to take part in this year’s markets. With the mixture of some new faces and some traders who joined our markets last year, we have a fantastic combination available for March and something for everyone on offer. We can’t wait!”

The market will again be situated on the boulevard near Pret and Gap and will be filled with local artists and designers who sell fantastic handmade gifts and products.

The centre is accepting applications for the Artisan Markets on Saturday 9 June and Saturday 29 September. If you are a local Etsy seller, applications for the Christmas Etsy Made Local Market are also being accepted but the date for this market is still to be confirmed.

do not have to be an Etsy seller to take part in the two remaining Artisan Markets on the 9 June and 29 September, but sellers do have to be independent and sell locally designed, handmade, upcycled or vintage items. The centre cannot unfortunately accept independent sellers who sell mass-produced items, items bought from trade shows or imported goods to resell.
