Checketts support new artists’ initiative

Famous family owned shop teams up with local artist, in support of new initiative

Checketts has for many years been a ‘destination’ shop, where customers travel to experience the atmosphere as much as to browse and shop their delightful range of fine foods & fabulous gifts, or just relaxing with coffee & cake, meeting friends for lunch or afternoon tea. But now there is more…..

Checketts have now teamed up with Jilly of Architectural Impressions in support of a new initiative to actively promote local artistic talent. Despite the high demand for space, an area of the coffee shop has been made available for the dedicated display of artists work and products. Where a single artist or subject is displayed for its customers to enjoy, view and purchase, this benefits the customer, artist and shop.

If successful Checketts will be looking to work with Jilly to provide its customers with access to a variety of local artists and their work, through spaces like this, changing frequently throughout the year.

Rachel Checketts: ‘I purchased some of Jilly’s work in Worcester last year and thought her artwork would be fantastic in our shop in Ombersley. Her beautiful paintings and fabulous cards are just the sort of thing our customers would love. Her unique style and the fact that she and her subject are local was an opportunity we just couldn’t pass up.’
