The By Local shop in Cheltenham's Regent Arcade has now closed, but all our makers still live and work in the area and are working on future plans for the group. To find out what the group is up to next, do sign up for our newsletter, which will keep you informed. To receive our newsletter, please click on the link below.

The hope is to come back as a more permanent fixture in Cheltenham. The Regent Arcade have been so incredibly generous and supportive, and we still have a home here, but we need to take a break to re-organise ourselves. The shop has been run for the last 21 months by one artist (who is now very tired). It was set up originally to run on a short term basis, but we've found (fantastically!) that we've lasted over 4 and a half years. You can also keep in contact via our Facebook page, Twitter and check this page for further news. And don't panic, all our Artists and Craftspeople still live and sell locally - and you can find their information on the Meet the Makers page.
