What about the goody bags?
They are back too and are looking awesome. There are 2 drops again planned for 5pm & 7pm - going to the first 25 through the door at these times.

Join us in supporting independent businesses, getting creative... eat, drink and be happy. The perfect way to shop small, supporting local homegrown talent and sort out your Christmas presents in one outing.

THoughtful Night Market... 16th Nov

Tuesday 22nd of October | Gareth

Our Thought Foundation shop aims to reflect the quality of northeast designer/makers. We give these small independent businesses a platform to reach our customers, who are considered and thoughtful in their purchases.


We carefully curate our shop to offer diverse and creative stock; you will always find something quirky, ethical and beautifully executed, made and sourced by people with a passion for what they do.


Take for example Olive and Clay- a one women creative factory producing stylish home ware from her studio in Chester-Le-Street, we love her paired down simplicity and muted tones. We also sell jewellery from multiple makers, unique pieces for gifts for friends, family and you!


We also offer products from Durham based duo, The Crafthood. Their refillable candles are our best sellers, we often have one burning in our office at TF to revive our spirits! In fact we got on so well with The Crafthood ladies that together we devised The Thoughtful Night Market, a curated gathering of quality stalls from the very best independent creative businesses across the North East (and a little further!), which we host at Thought Foundation twice a year. The next one is 16th Nov starting at 5pm.


We have a great selection of talent meaning each stall will offer something different. We have some of your favourite makers returning and new faces joining in too! The evening also offers a marvellous mix of live music, live illustration, demos & tasters, festive tipples, food and wonderful workshops to boot.


It will be our 5th Night Market, previous events have been well attended and well received! So if you are after an alternative Saturday night, in a quirky, chilled atmosphere, you could purchase all you chrsitmas gifts at once... Then Thoughtful Night Market is for you. No Need to book, pay on the door, £3.50 (a percentage will be donated to St Oswalds).
