Handmade Nottingham Winter Pop-up Shop

Last week the award-winning Handmade Nottingham, opened the doors to its new Winter Pop-up Shop on 8 Kings Walk… and I’m super chuffed to be one of the independent brands stocked in this fab retail space during the run up to Christmas.

The shop will be selling an array of gifts and homeware by over 80 British designer makers until 24th December (although lets hope it stays for longer). If you’re in or around Nottingham, do pop in for a spot of shopping – you’ll be spoilt for choice! From my collection you’ll find gorgeously colourful Christmas stockings, cushions and tea towels, plus limited-edition gift items too.

Well it’s almost time for me to wind down for a much-needed break over Christmas and New Year. I’ll be back with a bang in January with my first appearance at Top Drawer to look forward to and of course my January Sale!

I’ll be sharing details of both very soon but until then Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
