Draper's Yard Shedquarters

Draper's Yard in Chichester is home to a remarkable shedworking business model, a collection of more than a dozen sheds which are home to various businesses. It was created by local entrepreneur Kay Mawer, founder of Clothkits, after buying an old pub and adding the sheds in the former pub garden as a based for independent small retailers. There are now up to 20 businesses running from the premises at any one time and operate on anything from an ad hoc basis to full time selling art, textiles, fashion (above is The Clothes Shed), jewellery, ceramics, furniture, food and drink, hair and beauty, and antiques.

The sheds are open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am – 4pm, plus special events including a Draper's Yard Online Market Night Pre Valentine Special on February 7. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for news. -------------------------------------------------------
