The Re Store
THE RE STORE is a social enterprise working under the management of the charity West End Impact. THE RE STORE specialises in hand-made crafts and art with an ethos of sustainability. Many of the items are therefore made from re-cycled or eco-friendly materials. We believe in helping people who are struggling to reach their full potential and so we want to give an opportunity to help rebuild their lives through creativity.
West End Impact’s INNOVATE art group helps people in recovery, suffering from poor mental health, or those who have lost confidence due to long term joblessness and THE RE STORE gives an opportunity for people to show case and sell their work. It also gives local artists a platform and support the charity at the same time. We have volunteer opportunities in retail, with full mentoring support and training, again helping people into employment.
Restoration is a project of the charity West End Impact.
We offer a number of services including:
Furniture Bought and Sold
French Polishing and Refinishing
Upcycling and Paint Effects
Flat Pack Furniture Assembly
Free Collect and Delivery Service in the local area
We also take commissions and offer teaching and workshops.
You can find us at 42 Yorkshire Street, Morecambe, LA3 1QE.
Peter manages the shop. He has experience in Furniture restoration and French polishing and has previously carried out work for the Odd Chair Company. He has over 17 years of experience in the building materials trade.
Peter's vision is to provide a range of bespoke, restored and upcycled items as well as some affordable pieces to help the local community.
We run an educational programme allowing local people to learn skills in restoring, upcycling and refinishing.
If you would like to learn skills or you want help with some up-cycling project pop in and say hello (once lockdown in over), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
