New Upcycled Furniture, Craft and Gift Shop in Arbroath
An upcycled furniture, craft and gift shop is set to open in Arbroath.
CC’s Creations is all set to open on Keptie Street, directly across from the railway station this Saturday, (3 February), based in the former Arbroath Flower and Balloon Creations unit.
The store will sell painted furniture, and stock a selection of hand-crafted items from more than 20 local artisans.
Owner and furniture artist Chevonne Ross said that with each furniture sale, a donation will be made to mental health charity Reach Across.
Chevonne said: “I have had my fair share of mental health issues and I discovered painting is very therapeutic to me.
“I have decided to donate money of each furniture sale to Reach Across, a mental health charity within Arbroath.
“I plan to support other local charities also, changing which charity I support every three months.”
Chevonne is also hoping to offer craft classes to aspiring creators in the future, and is planning to deliver these herself and through other local artists.
She added: “I’m absolutely buzzing to open the shop.
“I’m very passionate about my work and other crafts.
“It’s definitely something new for the community.
“I will be offering craft classes and also I’m a paint stockist for well-known brands, something which nobody offers in Arbroath.”
A free raffle ticket to win a £100 voucher will be given to every customer on the opening day on Saturday.
