Shop news

Amazing photo of boxing hares taken locally by photographer Paul Soden
Jacqui Watkins, whose lino cut cards are so popular has brought out a range of notebooks £3-95 each
Paul Soden is happy to lie in wait for hours to get the perfect shot of local wildlife. Handmade Happiness stocks his large format cards (which could be framed) of birds of prey, hares, deer, pheasant etc. for £2.50 each. This framed photo - female on the right connecting with male on the left with a sharp right hook was taken at East Meon. A Christmas present with a difference for £29.

Saturday was the busiest day bar none in Handmade Happiness. Makers Sue Inglis (knitted ornaments) and Tanya Williamson (applique animal cushions) are coming in with more stock on Tuesday and on Sunday talented artist Sheila Barrow brought in a browser of unframed pictures for the shop to sell and three more framed originals.

I am also excited to see Christine Burgess' new paintings, also coming in on Tuesday. Recently I showed a picture of her atmospheric seascapes. They sold very quickly and now several people are waiting to be contacted when the next paintings come into the shop.

Michelle Green delivered 6 of her beautifully made needlefelted robins on Saturday along with a small herd of her reindeer.
Kate Box whose soft wrist warmers are so comfortable and warm to wear is coming in with fresh supplies too.

Opening hours this week are Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm. Basically if I'm in the shop it's open! Enjoy your week.
