Personalised Christmas SALE

50 days until the big guy comes - can you believe it?! This year has gone so fast, with so much happening, but yes, it's a fact, kids diving into Santa Sacks and clamouring to un-stuff their overstuffed stockings in the early hours of the morning is just around the corner.

So, we thought what better time than NOW to have a sale on all Christmas products! There's plenty of time to order and get them delivered, and hey, because we're so early there's even time to Lay-by for a few weeks.
So visit our website and see if you can spot anything that the kids (or grankids, or nieces and nephews, friend's kids ... ) might like to wake up to on Christmas morning.

5 Reasons to Buy Handmade

The holiday and gift-giving season is just around the corner, and unless you're super organised with all the shopping sewn up, you're like us and just starting to think about gift buying.

Why buy handmade? 
These days we are blessed with a wide range of handmade gifts available - all you have to do is look.

Five Reasons to Buy Handmade

1. Each gift is made with love. Someone has taken the time to lovingly handcraft your gift.

2. You know you will be giving a gift that is unique and not mass produced.

3. The products you buy are quality, not mass produced rubbish.

4. By buying handmade you are directly helping support a family, not giving your money to a large corporation.

5. Your whole experience will be more personal than anything you will get in a department store - you get to communicate with the person who will make your gift, you can ask for something different, for something extra.

We could add another reason too - you will make two people feel joy; the person you are giving the gift to and the handcrafter you purchased from.   

Will you buy handmade this festive season?
