The Great Eastern Craft Co-operative, or CRAFTCO for short, began in 1987 when ten local craftspeople formed a
co-operative and opened a shop and gallery in Southwold Market Place. Five years later they bought a house in the
High Street, originally a forge, which is now CRAFTCO.
"It's payday, so it's dangerous to be in here."
"The highlight of my holidays is coming here and buying something."
"It brightens up a dull day, coming in here."
"This is the most revered shop in the world."
"We've come from Oxford, and there's not a gallery there as nice as this one. You should expand."
"If I won the lottery you'd have to close CRAFTCO as I'd buy everything."
We have about 100 associate members, whose work is for sale in the shop. For more details, click on the links below.
