Handmade Happiness - outside

Photo taken in Dragon Street of Handmade Happiness
 Double doors open into two rooms. You can take a buggy or a wheelchair inside. The first smaller room has paintings on the back wall and the larger room on the right has handmade gifts by 35 people.

I hope that soon I can hire a sign writer to fill all those white spaces above the shop with beautiful hand-writing. And maybe provide a sign for the flagpole too. The building itself is around 400 years old although once over the well worn stone step and inside the shop I don't think you're aware of the building's age. Your eye is constantly taken by the awe-inspiring work of the clever artists and craftspeople. Colourful quilts, stained glass kaleidoscopes, delicately embroidered pictures, soft as butter knitwear, smooth wood and fine thrown porcelain as well as quirky little brooches and creatures. There are lots of cards too showing the work of local artists. Beautiful cards for £2-50 - less than in most other shops and most of these cards are only available in Handmade Happiness.

Come and browse. Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm. We're next to the computer shop on Dragon Street and there's even parking in the layby right outside. (If full the M&S car park off St Peter's road round the corner is really close by.)

wish I could pop in - one day perhaps.

I look forward to it Hazel! I've always admired your taste and would love a long chat over a pot of tea. When you're next in England?x
