About us

We are Adele Mackinnon, Carly Byrne and Steph Orr who met through our own small businesses back in 2017. With a joint passion for supporting small business we spent the years running and organising artisan markets within Intu MK. Our ethos has and always will be about quality local goods, created by local artists and getting their talent seen. Our most recent venture has been our pop up store, it had always been a dream of ours and thanks to Intu MK, Milton Keynes council and a successful crowdfunding campaign this dream became a reality in 2020 and couldn’t have come at a better time for local indie businesses, we’re also keen to do our bit to help save the high street so it really was a dream come true! This was a fantastic way to end the year on a high and a real success for all involved. With the first pop up The Indie Co name was born! We cannot wait to welcome you all back this spring with our second pop up and while our pop ups may come and go we will continue to bring you these unique quality products (that you truly cannot find anywhere else) here at The Indie Co online store. Thank you for your continued support of The Indie Collective and all the small businesses involved.
