Make Me Buy Me – Manchester & Preston


If you’re shopping in Manchester or Preston before Christmas you should take a look at the Make Me 2007 showcases for NW designers organised by the Design Initiative and Inner City Living.

Taking place in Manchester and Preston city centres, from November 22nd – December 24th, Make Me provides a variety of exciting ways to see and buy new, innovative work including jewellery, accessories, interiors, homewares, ceramics, textiles, furniture, gifts and art, direct from the makers and all in time for Christmas.

Now in its seventh successful year, Make Me makes the work of regional designers more available and affordable than ever before.

Inner-city-Living was established in 2004 to provide a showcase platform to promote the regions creative industries. Since our beginnings we have developed into a not for profit (NFP) organisation working with a variety of partners on creative projects that aim to aid the creative development of regional designers and manufacture.
