TRADERS who opened a “mini department store” in Manningtree are on the move.

Blooming Crafty will be relocating from Station Road to the former sweet shop in South Street.

It will be rebranded Creatively Crafty when it opens in the coming weeks, after renovation and redecoration.

Blooming Crafty opened in January last year and had a florists, craft stalls and travel agents under one roof.

Jenine Collier, who runs the business, said: “We are moving Blooming Crafty to new bigger premises over the next couple of weeks.

“We are looking for new people to come in and rent shelf space.”
