Celebrating a Summer of Sustainable Living & Fashion with our ‘Creative Collective’

Situated in the heart of historic Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire, the ‘Creative Collective’ pop up shop is a unique gifts, fashion and lifestyle shop that brings together small, independent businesses under one roof. We’re home to an ever-changing exclusive mix of around 50 sustainable makers, artists and curators, 90% of whom are local in Herts & Bucks.

If you’re looking for that perfect sustainable gift, or a treat for yourself, our friendly team is always happy to chat about our latest new arrivals.

With so many amazing sellers in the shop, its hard to choose a favourite!

‘Hot picks’ for summer ’22 include handcrafted cards and natural beauty products, as well as natural summer-scented home fragrance, delicate glassware, crystals, and retro furniture.

We like to always offer something new and exciting and to support emerging artists and we now stock a beautiful range of handpainted vintage plates from ‘Jen Roffe’, colourful cards from ‘Jackandthebean Design’, and découpage and plaster art from ‘Pretty Ceramics & Glass’. You will also find upcycled denim bags from ‘Lily Handmade Bags’, and summer-ready artisan straw bags from ‘Made in Provence’.

Last year we launched our ‘Designer Vintage & Sustainable Lifestyle’ rooms, which are much loved by customers in Berkhamsted and our pop ups in Harpenden. If you’re looking for designer vintage fashion, we have exclusive seasonal edits from local specialist ‘Inkahra’. Perfect for staying cool in a sizzling summer, ‘Hot Haveli’ has a new collection of Indian cotton block printed sleepwear that is also perfect for an evening of stylish lounging! We haven’t forgotten the little ones; ‘Little Eco Planet’ is now in store with a range of quality, preloved kids’ wear.

As well as our flagship shop on the High Street in Berkhamsted, now you can find us at the ‘Wild Raven Farm Barn Stores’ near Aylesbury.

This newly launched sustainable shopping destination is celebrating summer with a special event from 7.30pm to 9.30pm on 7th of July. We’ve joined with other small businesses based at the ‘Barn Stores’ to hold a ‘Ladies’ Night’. There will be music, a fun fashion show with vintage & modern ladies and children’s wear, exclusive discounts, a complimentary cocktail on arrival, and an opportunity to shop without the crowds. Tickets are just £12.50 with 10% donated to the Royal Marsden Hospital and Green Fingers. Details and some remaining tickets are available from  thebarnstoreevents@gmail.com It will be a relaxed and fun night, so come along and meet the Creative Collective and rest of the Wild Raven Farm team!

We hope to see you soon, Sinéad & Everyone here x
