We Make Bristol isn’t just any gift shop, it’s a gift shop with a difference!
The We Make Bristol shop can be found nestled in the heart of Westbury on Trym and our shelves are full of unique, good quality and readily affordable gifts that have all been produced by some of Bristol’s best artisans and creatives.
Our customers rarely leave empty handed and quite often can’t resist treating themselves to a little something too.
Did you know too that we are one of the UK’s many Social Enterprises.
Social enterprises come in all sorts of types and forms, but what connects them are these characteristics:
- They have a social mission written into their company
- They reinvest or give away more than 50% of their profits to further their social mission
- They are independent: owned and controlled in the interests of the social mission
Founder Amanda George’s passion and commitment is firmly set to supporting Bristol’s artisans and creatives by making their work readily available 6 days a week.
In her first 19 months Amanda has given 77% of her profits back to Bristol’s artisans – that’s in excess of £100,000.
What makes this possible is YOU, the people who visit We Make Bristol and make us your ‘go to’ shop for great quality, unique gifts.
Thank you to each and every one of you for your continuing support and making my vision a reality – Amanda George
