- WHO WE ARE -
It started in March 2005...Junk Shop burst into the UK to fill a sizeable gap in the market for fun, fresh thinking and (most importantly) affordable clothes. Soon after, in May 2006 we opened our first boutique on the Bohemian retail utopia of West Didsbury (174 Burton Road) and have been constantly spreading our branches at festivals and trade shows since then! Two years ago we moved to central Manchester and have been working hard collaborating with some of the best young, up-and-coming designers to bring you Sustainable fashion that's creative, playful, multi-cultural and distinctive, all made in Manchester. Having developed THREE unique labels by our own in-house design team (Made In The Mill, Jumble and Label of Love) we can guarantee constantly changing and ever evolving looks at the cutting edge of fashion.
In Sept of 2007 we moved to a new radical space in the heart of the city. With our finger now firmly on the pulse we have striven to bring to you a completely refreshing retail experience and have attracted attention from newspapers, community projects, Manchester Council, radio and television already. The shop has been lovingly furnished ENTIRELY using recycled or reclaimed materials; suspended spindle shelving, a remoulded fairy liquid bottle counter and walk in wardrobe changing rooms are just a few of the features you'll find. An ethical and inventive shopping experience in a beautiful installation like space makes us one of the few retailers who can genuinely boast of individuality.
If you feel your artwork, clothing or jewellery compliments our ideals then send us an email with pics at firstname.lastname@example.org or pop in to the store in person for an informal chat, we're always eager to find enthusiastic new folk to join the Junk collective!!
Also, if you've got any good pictures or your summer revelries, mad nights out or adventuring abroad in your own version of the Junk look then send them again to email@example.com to stand a chance of winning mystery prizes and perks.
Can't wait? Our online shop offers super fast delivery - your stuff will be with you within 3 days.
