Shop Small, Support LocalPosted by: Sam Pegg
Showcasing the craftsmanship of local makers at Annie Jude’s Shop
They only work with partners who are talented and passionate to ensure there is something for everyone at Annie Jude’s. Shopping small and supporting local businesses has never been more important. Annie Jude’s has become a great place for all of your gifts, cards and more. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of getting all of your gifts sorted out in one store – and maybe even a couple of treats for yourself.
Showcasing beautiful homemade items and supporting small business talent from Sheffield and beyond, their wide-ranging collection is sure to have something for you. The variety of products sold at Annie Jude’s is eye-opening and clear to see that it has been carefully curated to piece together only the best for you.
Annie Jude’s was opened in December 2021. Faith Nicholson had the idea for the shop after starting a small business creating Cross-Stitch kits and hoops during the first lockdown in 2020. Using her Cross-Stitch Goddess Instagram page she then started to meet a huge number of amazing people who were using the lockdown to start or grow small businesses from their homes. The sheer amount of talent in Sheffield and beyond astounded Nicholson and she loved the sense of community as well as being able to support these makers personally and recommend them to her friends.
It is powerful when a passion in hard times turns into an idea that can not only benefit yourself but also others. Sheffield has a strong community of small business with such a range of talent and ideas. The Annie Jude’s Shop is located in the heart of Hillsborough on Middlewood Road, we’d highly recommend you taking a visit and making a purchase or two. Shop small, support local.
In early 2021, Nicholson’s Mum (a healthy, capable and strong woman) was very unexpectedly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and passed away in a shockingly short period of time. Her loss left a huge hole in the lives of those who knew her. Her Mum had always known that her dream was to work for herself and before she passed she gifted some inheritance money saying ‘Now you can open your business’. So Annie Jude’s was born named in honour of Nicholson’s mum, showcasing beautiful homemade items and supporting small business talent from Sheffield and beyond. With an aim to continue to curate a wide variety of products ensuring everyone who comes into her shop can find something they love.
