The premise of the Alton Creatives Emporium set out by the council is to test creative business concepts. And part of the founding members’ vision is to make the space accessible for other creatives while this is in progress. As such there are a few different ways you can work with the Emporium.
Method 1 – Lease space;
There are many different style sets of shelving and displays available in the Emporium for guest creatives, alongside wall spacing, and the option to bring your own unique display stands. Price is negotiated on a case-by-case basis, purely because the needs of the artisanal wares and Makers varies so much.
As a guide price, a typical shelf rental is around £45 for the month. For that, we don’t take a commission; the only cost deducted is a card transaction fee.
One 5 shelf unit is inside the Emporium, available to rent by shelf, week to week.
Each creative, regardless of space taken will be provided with;
– feature on socials
– advice and support in merchandising, planning and marketing

Booking Enquiry Form
You can submit a booking request below. As you can imagine, it is important to differentiate the offering within the shop, with no competing offerings and a balance of price positions, therefore it will not always be possible to accommodate everyone, but we hope to accommodate as many local creatives as we can and will do our very best!
Method 2: Become a Stockist
One of our founding members, Mama Makes Crafts, has taken on the curation of stock within the shop alongside making her own wares. Another
