Number 8 is one of a growing phenomenon across the UK – small makers gathering together to sell their unique, bespoke, hand made or vintage items under one roof. The result is an eclectic gathering of fabulous ‘finds’ from thirty different makers, dealers, jewellers and artists where you can find your most difficult-to-buy-for-person something they will love.
Opened in 2013, Number 8 is the brainchild of Jeff Levi (a jeweller) and Andrea Jaye who set out with nine other traders (there are now over thirty) to bring people the things ‘you can’t get on the High Street’. But it’s also a community base for other sellers and a small percentage on each item sold goes to the overheads.
According to Jeff, the community has been very supportive, with some people dropping in every day to say hi and have a gander at what’s new in. Plus they’re always looking for people with interesting things to sell to join them – as long as they’re fairly local.
It’s a local shop for local people!
