York-based company that turns reclaimed wood into beauty items pops into high-end store
A small York business that recycles salvaged wood into beautiful objects has opened a pop-up store in a city department store.
PurePallets transforms old pallets, railroad ties and the lumber of old barns into unique and bespoke furniture, gifts and housewares. Now they are available from Fenwick at the Coppergate Center.
The sustainable company manufactures all of its products by hand in its workshop in Acaster Malbis. They are hoping that the initial six-week pop-up will be extended until the Christmas sales period.
The company has been in business since 2016 and counts York Gin among its business customers. They also run a successful stand at Shambles Market every weekend and have a full order book from individual customers.
They are currently expanding their small team. Co-founder Dawn Taylor said, “The guys from Fenwick approached us to see if we’d like to set up a pop-up in their home and gifts department.
“It’s a sign that we are recognized for the quality of the work we do. We are excited and delighted – and hope this is the start of a longer term relationship with Fenwick.
