HOPES OF GLORY FOR NEW BUSINESSES Shrewsbury shoppers are invited to help celebrate the grand opening of two new businesses at Shrewsbury Market Hall this weekend. To mark the launch of The House of Hen, run by Jo Henning, and Glory Goldsmith, owned by Pippa Price, there will be live music by local artists throughout the day on Saturday [OCT 27], as well as wine and nibbles, from 10am until 3.30pm.

A 10 per cent discount is also offered at both The House of Hen and Glory Goldsmith on any item purchased on Saturday during the opening event.

The House of Hen stocks quality, pre-loved clothing, shoes, accessories and household items. Jo also offers a professional home de-cluttering service and can sell on any unwanted items on customer’s behalf.

Glory Goldsmith offers a wide variety of beautiful and quirky creations, including handcrafted bird boxes, driftwood and rustic coat-hooks.  Pippa also sells unusual and unique decoupage furniture and picture-frames using a wide variety of old and recent comics, vintage magazines and fabrics.  Every item is a 'one-off'.  

Kate Gittins, site facilities manager at the market said: “We are delighted to be welcoming two new and enthusiastic stall holders to the market and wish Jo and Pippa every success.”

For more information call Jo on 07967 442328 or Pippa on 07870 910468.
