The Poundshop was founded in 2010 by George Wu, Sarah Gottlieb and Sara Melin, who challenged themselves to create the first design poundshop. The aim of the pop-up, which has appeared in a number of locations around the UK in the past few years, is to spread design to a wider audience by making it accessible through price and engagement.

They work with a range of designers, offering a testing ground for them to experiment with new and interesting products. With low overheads and the minimal risk of small-scale production, participants can experience the markets reaction to their wares first-hand. The Poundshop pop-up online shop allows people to purchase the products online and these can also be shipped overseas. Click through to see images of the Poundshop in Manchester:
