Lab Shop - Opens 14th February

Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Hello Campers! We are back & our new shop opens on Saturday 14 February.
Glorious Bristol has been crowned European Green Capital for 2015 and our new shop, Lab Shop, is part of an exciting new space on the harbourside called Bristol 2015 Lab. It will feature our innovative product range inspired by Bristol's history, people and places plus a selection of artwork that will change throughout the year to reflect the five Green Capital themes.

Our first shop theme is transport so expect plenty of prints & gifts featuring balloon filled skies, fleets of ferries and beautiful bicycles, plus one pair of trusty trainers. We will also be the exclusive retailer for official ‘In it for Good’ sustainably produced merchandise.
