This year we thought that we all needed a bit of a treat and a special time so we have added a small Christmas market to our ever popular Christmas shop.
The market is free to enter and even though on the smaller side, compared to a lot of Christmas markets, is packed full of Christmas goodies from felt decorations to Stow Sloe Gin, from thick luxurious hot chocolate to mulled wine and Homemade Christmas cakes. Lots of tasters will be available and some special offers too. We have got some super flavoured gins and vodkas from Tiptree including a Christmas pudding rum which sold out on the first day, (don’t worry we have got some more in stock now!)
We have Tom Savano cocktails which are a luxury internationally renowned premix cocktail. How about a lycée martini on Christmas morning!?
We have some amazing mustards straight from France in beautiful earthenware pots, some delicious flavoured rubs for meat and vegetables and lots of idea about how to use them.
We have Panattone and olive oils from Italy, special chilli sauce and chilli chocolate for the hot headed, some artisan hand made chocolate from Norfolk, quite delicious, tasters available!!
There are some scrummy roasted flavoured nuts, (included salted caramel cashews!) and some really special flavoured sea salt from Dorset. All these wonderful things will add a bit of luxury to your Christmas table and make wonderful presents too, (even forthe “hard to buy for”).
Lovely material wrapped little bars of soap and dishes to fit. Some gorgeous hand creams and lip cream, come and test them. Some really fun and completely heavenly smells for men, hand wash, hand scrub, shampoo and body wash. Also we have a range of Filberts Bees products in little tins, really lovely gifting. They all contain bees wax from their own hives in Dorset and include lip balm, foot balm, baby balm and cuticle cream. there is even a mint choc chip flavour!!
We have our own honey as well!
The shop has turned into a glittery heaven of presents and gifts for you and your family and friends.
We have charity Christmas cards from Tapping House Hospice & EACH and some beautiful Christmas wrapping paper and thank you cards.
The selection of gifts for children is very wide from lovely little stocking fillers to larger presents which you won’t find on the high street. There are little cars and aeroplanes, HUGE tractors and transporters, beautifully made wooden animals from Sri Lanka, all of which your children will be delighted with on Christmas morning, and will give you a few more precious minutes in bed!
We have lovely jam jar candles from Tiptree, including some mini ones which include a free mini pot of jam.
There are some lovely white, silver, gold and red shimmery tree shaped candles which will really set off your table centre piece.
