Design to make you feel fine

Thanks for dropping by.

Chirpy is a contemporary gift shop and workshop space located in Chapel Allerton, Leeds. Please have a look around to find out more about Chirpy & get in touch.

Creative but affordable design

We're an independent lifestyle design store in North Leeds, stocking unique home accessories and goods with personality, character and style, for all ages.

If you're fed up of the big high-street stores, or just bored of mass produced, souless design, we might just be the answer! We’re a friendly bunch and only too happy to help you find something that little bit different for an impressive gift or item for the home.

We're proud to be in Yorkshire too, so we believe in supporting independent local and UK designers and makers. It's little things like this which help to keep crafts and skills alive, while looking after the environment.

We also host craft workshops and creative parties, led by the local artists and makers who's goodies can be found in the shop. These are held in our cool upstairs space above the store, with a mix of day, evening and weekend classes. Check out the Workshops page for more info.

Hi, I’m Jo, the new Chirpy lady!

chirpy_harriet

Chirpy has been in Chapel Allerton since 2012, set up and run by Harriet. She’s now left to have a baby and I’m delighted to be the new owner.

Chirpy will continue to stock the same kind of stylish and design led gifts, where possible made in the UK and often locally in Yorkshire. I’m always looking for new exciting designers to showcase and support.

Upstairs at Chirpy I’ll continue to run a varied programme of arts and craft workshops which I’m looking to expand with more courses as well as the one off workshops. I’m also using this space to host art exhibitions, where artists can showcase their work and hold ‘Meet the Artist’ events.

If you’re interested in getting involved, then please contact me or check out the workshops details here.

I’ve had a very warm welcome from all of Chirpy customers and am looking forward to continuing to be everyone’s favourite gift shop in Chapel Allerton!
