Our First Opening Weekend

Phew! The Opening Weekend of Our Handmade Collective is over! We now have 2 days off to make more lovely things before we open again on Weds at 11am. We’ve been really touched by the lovely things that people have been saying when they visit the shop.

Here is a gallery of some of the colourful creations we have in Our Handmade Collective. They include:


^ Bath bombs by Little Shop of Lather;


^ Vintage inspired aprons by Kitsch-ina;


^ Bbeautiful button rings by The Button Boutique;


^ Glass by Tina Green Glass Artist;


^ Colourful crochet by Rose Cottage Crafts;


^ Tasty preserves by The Seasonal Larder;


^Nappy cakes by Bottoms-up Nappy Cakes & Huggable soft toys by Ted&Co Handmade;


^ Illustrated cards by Clarry Cards;


^ Photographic printed coasters by SciArtImages;


^ Printed Cushions by UrbanFox and by Createve;


^ Cute button hearts from Imagine by Lindsay Chapman.

The whole of Handpicked Hall is a treasure trove of loveliness with other makers selling their beautiful creations. I was very tempted to buy some fabric kits from our neighbour Love Me Sew.


I was also mesmerised by the stunning needlefelting of Miss Marmalade. Like us she is a permanent stallholder in Handpicked Hall and will be there every Weds-Sun. I fell in love with this colourful felted table which has pride of place inside the main Vicar Lane entrance to Handpicked Hall.


In our next blog post we’ll show you the fun activities we had this weekend. It was so popular that we plan to run a Kids Korner where your kids can play whilst you look through our wide range of gifts!
