Independent Retailer Month

O3 gallery

Tuesday 1st - Thursday 31st July.

Independent Retailer Month is an annual campaign run throughout July that aims to increase footfall to towns and village centres, as well as highlighting the important role played by smaller, local and independent retailers in their communities. As an independent retailer the O3 Gallery Shop is proud to participate in this scheme; who better than to put our feelings into words than our very own Feng Ho, in charge of sourcing and buying...

‘There is something magical about finding something that no one else will have. Many of the products that we stock at the O3 Gallery are one-of-a-kind, hand crafted in the UK from emerging designer-makers. As an independent retailer, we take great pleasure in hand picking products that we love, and hope our customers will enjoy them too. We are delighted to be part of this campaign - shopping in Oxford has so much more to offer than just the high street!’

As a further incentive, every purchase made in the O3 Gallery Shop, or any partaking retailer, gains an entry into the indie prize draw to win a mystery item from one of the other stores.

Other local shops participating in Independent Retailer Month include: Annie Sloan, Fairtrade at St Michaels, Indigo, The Fibreworks, Objects of Use, Rainbow and Spoon, Casa Rose, Gilt and Grain, Arts at the Old Fire Station, Bridget Wheatley, Darn It & Stitch, Exclusive Roots, Fabulous Flowers, Oxford Yarn Store, Oxford Ceramics Gallery, The Oxford Pantry and Truck Store. To find other local, independent shops please visit the Independent Shops Directory.

Crafty Networking Evening

O3 gallery


Crafty Networking is a collaborative programme between O3 Gallery, the VERVE project at the Pitt Rivers and Darn It & Stitch. Crafty Networking is an Initiative to support craft-workers, designers and artists to make positive connections with like-minded people. We endeavor to put makers, sellers, bloggers, buyers and enthusiasts in touch to discuss their work, share skills and interests, meet people who may be able to help with the commercial success of their work, and connect them with the rich and inspirational collections at the Pitt Rivers. Crafty networking events take places four times a year.

Next Event:

Thursday 4th September 2014, 6-7:30pm
Pitt Rivers Museum

Join O3 Gallery, The Pitt Rivers Museum and Darn It & Stitch at the Pitt Rivers Museum for a relaxed event that will bring together individuals with a vested interest in the development of local and national craft. From buyers for shops and galleries, craft workers and artisans, to design teachers and the crafty curious, we are dedicated to building a network for all those involved and interested in craft and design.

There will be a short talk then visitors will then be invited to connect with fellow guests over a glass of wine.

Display tables will be made available but due to conservation issues, we ask that you don't bring silk, natural wool, untreated organic material or wet products – if in doubt, drop Jozie ( an email. Cash bar.

O3 Gallery runs Crafty Networking in partnership with The Pitt Rivers Museum and Darn It & Stitch.
