Shop Opening in The House That Jack Built

Gosh! & Absolutely shop opening

Well, it has certainly been an exciting few weeks for Gosh! & Absolutely. We have been busy rewiring, stitching, sticking and generally crafting because on Friday 19th August we opened a shop! Much as we love doing craft fairs there comes a point when the appeal of running a hobby business in this way wears a little thin (that point is when you are literally hanging on to your gazebo in a howling gale and don’t have enough spare hands to catch your falling stock). We will still be doing the odd fair because of course we want to spread the ‘ban the beige’ message far and wide (or at least across East Cornwall and West Devon).

Our new shop is based in The House that Jack Built, an arcade of independent businesses in Plymouth’s historic Barbican area. The House that Jack Built has been around since the 1980s and many Plymothians have fond memories of the fairytale scenes in the corridors between the shops. We are situated towards the rear of the arcade facing The Parade and are just a stone’s throw from Sutton Harbour – dangerously close to all the ice-cream parlours, fudge retailers and fish and chip shops the area has to offer.

Anyway, many lovely people came to join us for the opening and we were touched by the messages of support we received – not least from all our neighbours in The House that Jack Built.

We hope many of you will be able to visit us soon.
