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.

Absolutely perfect to buy gifts for those who appreciate a handmade item. Great for inspiration and staff are friendly and more than willing to offer advice on projects. Well worth a visit!
