Just wanted to share a post on a christmassy collaboration that is happening in the delightful North Devon village of Clovelly over two weekends leading up to Christmas!
From the Wilde (online art boutique) and Rowan Tree Studio are getting together to open a real live Christmas Shop selling British Handmade gifts, cards and Christmas decorations in the village. The shop will be open for 4 days as below:
November 27th 10.00 – 4.00pm
November 28th 12.00 – 8.00pm
December 4th 10.00am – 3.00pm followed by Christmas lights event in Clovelly Village
December 5th 12.00 – 8.00pm
The studio will be very festive with gorgeous decorations and a lovely tree as well as the artists items displayed all around to buy including the decorations on the tree! Complementary drinks and minced pies will be on offer as well as a free gift wrapping service for all gifts that are purchased over those days.
Each person can also make a small personalised tree decoration to take away free of charge. To follow along pop over to the blog www.awilderowanchristmas.blogspot.com as it tracks each Artist as they are announced and details of the stock including some items that have been made exclusively for the shop. The items will mostly be under £30 to keep it all very affordable. Locals and those visiting the area I'm sure will enjoy the unique shopping atmosphere as well as chatting and meeting other people.
So if you're in the South West(or even further afield) and would love to experience a unique christmas shopping day as well as support British handmade craft take a day trip to Clovelly- I'm sure it will be brilliant day out!
