The Journey Person Handmade Popup Shop is into its 3rd year and we thought we'd celebrate by revisiting our earlier popups!
It all began back in 2015 when two local designers who'd been admiring each others work for several years got together and brainstormed.
Jacqueline Chan (Whimsy Milieu) and Madeline Young (The Corner Store Gallery) decided there should be a CURATED market in Orange showcasing the beautiful work of the many talented local designers they knew existed! There was space at the gallery for a few days before Christmas so they decided to give it a shot. They contacted 10 local designers that they knew, Fiona Schofield, Georgie Goldsmith, Lanny Mackenzie, Maggie Warrel, Amelia Herbertson, Jes Dalton, Sarah Powell, Emily Burton, Michelle Kent and Esther Parton and asked them to get involved. The shop was an unexpected hit - we had people lining up at the door 15 minutes before we even opened!

From 12 humble makers back in December 2015 to the fantastic array of over 35 local designer we have on the lineup now, and we're still growing..... It's been a wild ride and we couldn't be more grateful!!! Thank you so much to all our loyal supporters, you know who you are. We're very excited to be growing with our local community and look forward to bringing you even more talented local makers in the future.
Remember to shop small and support local business, it's what makes our region such a beautiful place to live! See you at our next Handmade Popup for 2018 F.O.O.D. Week April 5-8.
