Mulled Wine, Mince Pies and Mud Packs….

On Saturday 17th October we had our Christmas launch evening at Our Handmade Collective. We planned to treat shoppers with mulled wine and mince pies, and the mulled wine was amazing thanks to fabulous spice packs from Syndi of Asharun Spices.

Right from the beginning the shop was full with people coming to check out the new Christmas products from our 36 makers.

Many, Many thanks to all our lovely customers who came down to the launch night and made it such fun!
