A really lovely place to buy that special gift. The craftspeople who make such lovely things are so talented, ranging from stained glass, ceramics, knitted and stitched items, greetings cards; the choice is endless. Well worth a visit.

Lovely little shop stuffed with loads of handmade items. Things a little pricey for my pocket though. Which was a shame cos had my eye on a lovely skeleton clock with Apple wood frame. Lovely Lady serving on day I went. Very friendly and helpful!

We are glad you like our Shop! Unfortunately handmade often means that things are a bit more money but usually worth it as no one else will have one the same. We hope you call in again.
