18 Feb The Art Market – New Outlet at The Strand
A new outlet has opened at The Strand in Douglas, a store called The Art Market. This is the latest venture to come under the wing of local Company Director Roberto Edmanson-Harrison of ArtworkX of Mann.
The idea of this market was borne out of collaboration between four local companies, working together in during the ‘Crossroads Charity Christmas Market, which was held in a unit within the Strand Shopping Centre, last November & December 2010.
Roberto contacted the company owners and asked if they would be interested in continuing their business relationship on a more permanent basis and the rest just came together with the help of The Strand Shopping Centre’s Manager Mr John Shakespeare, who with his open and forward thinking attitude to business, along with the co-operation and agreement of Strand Owners have leased one of the units on a temporary basis to trial attitudes locally to this New Artisan Concept in the Isle of Man’s Capital, Douglas.
So come along to…The Art Market, Strand Shopping Centre, Ground Floor, between Mothercare and The Early Learning Centre. This Unit, will play host to our Saturday Only Artisans Market.
