It has been a manic six weeks since we picked up the keys to 12 Highland Road with the plan to create a multipurpose space in Southsea: a shop for Strong Island Clothing Co & Strong Island Recordings, an exhibition space and the new studio home for Strong Island and Strong Island Media. This is something we’ve wanted to do for some time.
Saturday 15th we opened the doors for the first time with the varnish and paint barely dry and it was awesome to have so many people come through the door to say hi, have a look at the new space and buy some of the many new items from Strong Island Clothing Co. We’ve got so many people to thank who all helped make this possible:
Harley from Harleywood Carpentry
James Porter and crew
Ben Rowe the amazing decorator
Wes & Crew from K & W Electrical
Mike from Chilli Tattoo
Ian from Artisan Framing Southsea
Also a big thank you to everyone who came in on Saturday and a massive thank you to the guys at Head Mens Hairdressing, we loved our two years as their neighbours and will miss them.
Strong Island Co is open this week (and every week until nearer Christmas) from Thursday to Saturday, 10am to 6pm and you can find us at 12 Highland Road, Southsea, PO4 9AH. Hope to see you soon!
