  • A charming place! Much art and very quiet inspiration and friendly people a pleasant corner of Manchester :)
    show original
  • It is a bustling old Victorian building full of beautiful jewellery, unique art, friendly shopkeepers and a lovely little cafe. 
  • Lots of tiny little art and craft shops spread over two levels: jewellery, glass,pottery,paper. Some gorgeous unique gifts to be found 
  • Nice place to visit, with some skilled independent artists. Plenty of unique items available. A bit of a hidden gem in the doorstep of the city centre. Also home to the Oak St cafe, who serve up some delicious cakes and hot drinks - personally a favourite stop off for a light refreshment.
  • Fantastic place always new things to see and locally crafted gems to find. Cracking coffee at the craft centre cafe too.
  • Cute craft market with artist studio and cafe off the beaten track (close to all the cool cafés). Here you can find independent designers/makers/artists for jewellery, homewares and paintings. Ended up getting myself a very delicate rosegold plated necklace with a blown glass bubble pendant that has gold flakes inside - very different and very understated. They also do themed exhibitions in the main part of the market! Just go!
  • Quite an interesting place, I can't say that it's something that one would stumble upon but definitely worth a visit for the arts and crafts but also the coffee shop which serves excellent home baked cakes
  • Lots of really different ideas here. Bought my wife a lovely thumb ring which , unfortunately had a slight rough edge. When I returned it ( without a receipt !) the owner couldn't have been more helpful and sorted the problem there and then , many thanks , will be back !
