Our "Hand Made" Designer

We are delighted with the publicity material created for us by designer Sally Boyle. From sock monkeys to teapots, paper cuts to heather, Sally's work has a distinctive style.  Her designs epitomise our hand made fairs and markets.  
We are in love with her peacocks, fairytale characters and her latest designs "Spring Wren" and "Summer Fox"
