The New Curiosity Shop Closes


The New Curiosity Shop closed its doors for the final time on Saturday (12th March) to a throng of creative visitors. On the final day we all sat down to watch a collection of curious clips conceived by the people of Blackburn.

Over the past three weeks visitors to the shop contributed to the project by filling our empty jars with the things that they value, and sharing their short stories by putting them in our cans. All based around the theme of ‘things that money can’t buy’.

At night the shop came alight by the eerie glow emanating from the magical produce of the shop.

The team at Action Factory had great time engaging with the people of Blackburn.We had an amazing response from a wonderful mix of people. There were many inspiring conversations over a cup of tea on things that we value, that don’t have a monetary value. Fancy a bit of ‘milk of human kindness’ in your tea?

The Blackburn folk are an amazingly creative lot.
