UK Vintage Personality of the Year helps launch new Vintage Shop

Friday, 28th November 2014

UK Vintage Personality of the Year, Pendle’s own Kiki de Ville, will be the first to see behind the scenes at Nelson’s new arts and vintage shop!

The Australian singing star, now living in Earby, was also picked for Team Will-I-Am on BBC The Voice UK.

Kiki will be meeting the people behind the new Shop this Friday, including the artist in residence Helen Oxley and some of the craftspeople who’ll be selling their unique products.

 Her sneak preview is a week ahead of The Shop’s opening on Saturday 6 December and Sunday 7 December for Nelson’s popular Arts and Vintage Market with over 40 stalls at the ACE Centre.
Called simply The Shop, it will transform the old post office on New Scotland Road  into a creative emporium where people can buy, sell, browse and take part in workshops.
It’s been designed as a new creative space where shopping can be relaxing, creative and fun!

Councillor Paul White who leads on enterprise said:

“We’re backing this exciting idea which adds a totally new dimension to the town centre.

“It’s come about thanks to Mary Portas funding for Nelson and support from the Arts Council,” he explained.

Lara Oddie from Oddies Bakery, the Vice Chair of the Nelson Town Team which supports Mary Portas funded projects, will also be there to see how The Shop is shaping up.

“The Arts and Vintage Market has been a huge success and The Shop will build on that as a permanent feature for the town,” Paul stated.
 
For more details on the Arts and Vintage Market and The Shop which are open 10am – 4pm on Saturday and Sunday visit www.facebook/nelsonvintage

“The Shop will bring more people into Nelson and attract students from Nelson and Colne College too,” Paul said.

Kiki de Ville said:

“Vintage clothes are my passion and I’m a big fan of Nelson’s Arts and Vintage Market.

“It’s a real treasure trove I love to browse around for special things.

“I’m thrilled to be the first to see the new permanent arts and vintage emporium in Nelson.

“You can be sure I’ll be one of The Shop’s regular customers!” She added.

After the  Arts and Vintage Market weekend, The Shop will then be open Wednesday to Saturday from 10am – 3pm right up to Christmas for people to buy some unusual arts and vintage gifts.

Arts Development Manager Kirsty Rose from the Pendle Leisure Trust has been working all hours with Arts Development Project Co-ordinator, Carmela Manta and Artist  in Residence Helen Oxley to get The Shop open in time.

Kirsty explained: 
“The Shop will be a place where people can come for coffee and buy beautiful unique things, from pre-loved vintage clothing and furniture to jewellery and original art.

““People will be able to browse and have a coffee and parents can relax whilst their children play in the same room.

“It’s a place people will want to spend time in,” she added.
