Think Big Shop Small

Saturday, August 7


If you say something 15 times it really sticks in your brain, right?

The Real Ideas team challenges you to say, ‘Think big and shop small’ across 15 friends, acquaintances, loved ones and colleagues, because independents really need you – socially distanced, of course!

Real Ideas have pledged to support their growing community of members across their buildings through retail and exhibition opportunities. They also want the voice of local makers and artists to be heard, and their spaces are excellent platforms to do so.

So through our summer programme, they want to offer a continuing platform for small businesses to showcase the products with a series of retail pop-ups. 

This pop-up market takes place at Ocean Studios on Saturday, August 7, from 10am to 3pm.
