Salt Shack takes up permanent residency at intu Milton Keynes!

Salt Shack – a business which has been taking part in the Etsy MK Artisan Market since the markets began – is joining intu Milton Keynes for good as a result of the incredible success it’s had at the events.

From 4 November, it will be in its new spot between Superdry and Levi’s, selling Himalayan salt lamps and other products, all of which are genuine, fair trade and beautifully made items. With prices starting at just 99p, the lights make brilliant Christmas gifts.

Luke Timberlake, who runs the business with his partner Dannielle Beale, said: “We thoroughly enjoy the Etsy MK Artisan Markets at intu Milton Keynes and each one has been very successful for us. It’s really exciting to be taking up a permanent spot!”

Shelley Peppard, general manager at intu Milton Keynes, said: “The right businesses really can flourish here at intu Milton Keynes. By taking part in our Etsy MK Artisan Markets, small retailers are able to gauge what kind of success they might have. Salt Shack has always been so popular at the markets, so this is natural progression. It’s a wonderful business. We wish them every success and can’t wait to have them on board!”

Luke and Danielle’s passion for salt lamps began when their son, Tristan, was born six years ago. Along with Down syndrome, poor hearing and eyesight, and a serious heart condition, Tristan was also born with a disease that affected his airway. After Danielle bought him a salt lamp to help alleviate his symptoms, she was inundated with interest in it and decided to start selling them. Salt Shack has now been up and running for three years.

Salt lamps are thought to: cleanse the air; reduce asthma and allergy symptoms; ease coughing; increase energy levels; improve sleep, mood and concentration.
