I’ve recently visited the Handpicked Hall in Leeds and heard rumours about a department store for makers in Skipton, and I have to say, I’m excited.
Repurposing old buildings for good, Handpicked Hall gives a space to local independent makers, creatives, and eateries and allows them to reach the public. It was so refreshing to pop in to the Leeds hall after spending many a city-centre session traipsing through the uber commercialised and generic Trinity Walk. You could tell that the pieces have been individually picked by the person you are buying them from, or hand made with much love and attention.
Handpicked Halls can be found in Leeds, Skipton, and Ripon.
