Super Destination Arts & Craft Gallery

Devizes

Advert ref: 875SH

Bluestone Gallery was created by the current owner 18 years ago, and has since become one of the foremost craft galleries in Wiltshire and the South West.

There you will find a delightful mix of art, jewellery, ceramics, glass, sculptures, paintings, photographs and textiles from over 100 makers. All of the pieces are displayed in comfortable and well lit surroundings, which invite you to linger and browse at your leisure.

Bluestone Gallery is clearly a very well established business that has become very much a destination shop that is very well know throughout the South West of the UK.
It represents a fantastic opportunity for someone, or perhaps a couple, who have a passion for arts and crafts, or who perhaps are already makers of some description, to take the very solid foundations of this business and put their own stamp on it.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL ENQUIRIES MUST BE MADE THROUGH THE BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP OFFICE AND NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE THROUGH THE GALLERY OWNERS OR STAFF.
