The Arc

The Arc

This shop has been around under different names since 1932., owned by my Step Dad Don. I worked here as a young-un when it was The Art Centre on Lime Street. I've lived in London for the past 18 years and after having our second baby I packed in the day job and we moved back to Bedford right before the pandemic. I took over the reins from Don and took the keys to what was a closed shop due to the first lockdown. Throughout the first lockdown we fully refurbed the place and added lots of new home, craft and kids lines.

A few lockdowns later (who's counting at this point!) and with a lot of help from the team we are back open with hopefully no more blips in the road. We have absolutely loved the transformation the shop has taken over the past year and can't wait for you to see it.

Here's to a happy future for us all.
