In November 2011, at 142 Chapel Street in Salford, we opened a temporary shop. We invited artists and designers to submit work with an architectural theme and we kept the shop open until Christmas of that year.

Prints, posters, etchings and tea towels were all for sale. The glass cabinets were the result of an eBay purchase and a mammoth trip to Leigh on Sea.

A tea towel featuring Salford's Shopping City was an unexpected hit. The illuminated sign was loaned to us by artist Andrea Booker.

The success of the shop led us to continue selling publications and artwork on line - this helps to subsidise our on-going work.
