Their stock consists of an eclectic, balanced mix of prints, illustrations and original artwork – with a principal goal to provide pictures that add humour to the world and create perfect, unique gifts.

This business is available on a leasehold basis, with rent payable at a current rate of £6,762 per annum (including utilities and taxes). Stock with an approximate value of £15,000 - £20,000 is not included in the advertised price. However, the vendor has advised they would be willing to negotiate a reduced price for all or part of this.
The gallery and shop benefits from a prime location, within the popular Halifax Piece Hall. Situated on the top floor above the South Gate, this popular tourist spot ensures high levels of footfall and passing trade, with convenient car parking and good local transport links.
Customers enter directly onto the gallery floor. The walls are well stocked with art pieces available for sale. There is also a glass cabinet showcasing other items for customers to purchase.
The current owner has advised they would be happy to provide a transitional period and handover to a prospective purchaser, should it be required.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual passionate about art in search of a lifestyle business with a longstanding reputation.
In terms of future potential, opportunities for growth with this business are plentiful. The business already has a website to help provide an online presence for the gallery.
Developing this further to include an e-commerce functionality would allow customers from further afield to browse and purchase art pieces, increasing sales. A new owner may also look to list pieces across third-party sales sites, to increase reach to potential buyers even further.
