How to find Afflecks

038

Did you know that at Afflecks we have a creative space that is ‘not a shop’?

Afflecks creatives is a lovely space on the 3rd floor that is overseen by our creative in residence Joy France, it is a space whereby anyone can feel free to create and leave their mark within our walls. Paint, draw, write, leave a message telling us what you will do one day or simply just have a look at what others have done. The space is evolving everyday and everything created within the space will be kept and displayed at the end of the year.

We have collaborated with a number of very talented artists that have been invited to draw and paint on our walls. Shoppers will find art in every twist and turn as they work their way across 4 floors of vibrancy. There are a number of shops within Afflecks selling artwork by local talent – be sure to visit The Fox Fairy, SWALK Creative, Stag & Raven and Not on Your Skin Glass Engraved Art all situated on the 3rd floor. You will also find Afflecks Creatives on the 3rd floor, a space where visitors can unleash their inner creative!

Saturday 5th December is Small Business Saturday, so more than ever please support your local and small independent businesses on this day. There are endless reasons as to why you should support independents, small businesses keep our communities unique, small businesses put your taxes to good use requiring comparatively little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services as compared to nationally owned stores entering the community.

Buy something that has been created with love and not mass produced.

When purchasing from stores such as Primark, take a minute and think where your money is going.

Shoppers seen making a purchase in Afflecks on Small Business Saturday will be randomly selected and rewarded with a thank you of support and a £10 Afflecks Gift Voucher to spend or give as a gift to a loved one.

Kellogg’s has created a culinary masterpiece to celebrate the Queen becoming Britain’s longest-serving monarch – cornflakes fit for royalty.

Fans of Her Majesty can feast upon gold-leaf Special K flakes and edible diamonds and pearls to celebrate her special day.
Kellogg’s created the cornflakes because Brian Houey, author of ‘At Home with the Queen’ recently told PEOPLE magazine that an average day for the monarch includes eating a bowl of cornflakes.

The commemorative cornflakes are mixed with macadamia nuts (a favourite of the Queen’s) along with the edible jewels.
you can only get the breakfast food at Black Milk Cereal Dive, Afflecks.
