Meet Grotto, a welcome new addition to the Northern Quarter. This pop-up shop is the perfect antidote to the crowds of Christmas shoppers that have started to descend on Manchester streets.

The concept has been developed by Fraser Chapman and one69a, and is located in the former Mooch Art gallery on Oldham Street*

Grotto prides itself in bringing you glorious Christmas gifts made by the fair hands of some of Manchester’s most talented artists. From sculpture to sweatshirts and paintings to poetry they’ve got gifts to suit even the fussiest of friends this Xmas. And best of all it’s not going to break the bank, with items starting from 50p!

* Revision Grotto will be relocating to the former Babycakes store on Edge Street as of Wednesday 8th December 2010.
