All items in the shop are handcrafted and local.
We now have over 80 artists displaying their products and we know each artist personally !
We were much busier in the shop over Christmas than we expected, nearly back to normal - which was nice. We've had a good break, and have now fully re-displayed our windows and all the display areas in the shop. It's looking good ! Come and have a browse.

You can still view last Christmas's 3D Virtual Walkthrough
You can step through the shop (click on white circles on the floor), visit all the downstairs rooms, and even zoom in for a closer look. Also click on the Blue Tags for further information. Enjoy!
Please note: because time has passed since these were taken, many items will have been sold and because they are unique and handcrafted will not now be available. These Walkthroughs do however give a good idea of the type of stock we have. We will of course have lots of new items in the shop. You will have to visit and browse !
Note: we also still have our Summer 2020 3D Walkthrough available on our Shop page, this also includes our upstairs Studio.
