East St Emporium was created in January 2021 by Founder - Creative Director Lou Mack. Her vision was to set up a collection of unique, independent, creative businesses all trading under one roof with sustainability at the heart of everything that is made and sold. After gathering together a collection of local, creative makers to form East St Emporium and joining forces with fellow Director Sarah Hudd (Wisteria Workshop),the hard work started on getting the shop building ready for trading. After months of a huge team effort building walls, painting, and cleaning, East St Emporium finally opened its doors on 25th September 2021 inside a beautiful Victorian building in BS3 Bristol.
The Emporium has been a huge success and is now home to an eclectic mix of over 80 creative makers/stockists.
