This year has flown by & our feet have hardly touched the ground! Exhibiting for the RHS and BBC Gardeners’ World seems a million miles away, as does delicious trips to meet our suppliers in Spain.
Now it’s batten down the hatches – winter is here. So to cheer ourselves up we’ve organised a Christmas Market, a Dingly Dell inspired affair with music, mulled wine and makers’ market, under the boughs of our ancient Olive Trees. A magical setting I think you’ll agree. We’ve got Norfolk’s finest independent designers and artists so you can find that something special for loved ones.
Award winning designer and artist Richard Horne aka ‘El Horno’ will be selling his amusing posters ideal for adults and children alike. He will be set up in my teeny tiny shed/office so perhaps the smallest pop-up gallery known! (Note to self look up in Guinness Book of Records.) Also cozying up in the shed will be Sophie Makes Spaces, handmade lamp shades that delight and dazzle.
Nestled among the ancient Olive Trees you can find Christmas Wreath Kits from ‘Gabrielle’s Garden’ and vibrant mosaics from ‘Sarah’s Mosaics’. Not only that folks but our Christmas Market will be serving up the finest Vietnamese Street food from the talented Papaye Verte. Treat yourself to a delicious Vegan Pho or succulent Beef Pho.
We will have musical interludes from the entertaining and funny ‘The Dry Tortugas’ and some sweet C & W from ‘Big Steve’.
All this while you browse vintage jewellery from ‘Aforetime’, salivate over accessories from ‘vandertas’ and treat yourself to something from homeware designer ‘The Animals of’. Rachel from ‘The Animals of’ designs delightful tea towels adorned with cute bunnies, penguins & our friends of the sea – octopus and Norfolk crab. So animal lovers you will be in heaven.
Teenagers and the young at heart will adore the T-Shirts from Morwenna Farrel. She’s so on trend this Christmas. There’s knitwear too and felting for the little ones from ‘Faery Woollen Folks’ and the talented ‘Pauline James’. Mexican Folk art fans will love Tedda Stuart’s woodcarvings.
Paul and I will have a treasure trove of brocante & our best French flea market finds PLUS we will be offering a festive discount of 20% off Palms and Yucca trees and 10% off our ancient Olive Trees, Cacti and Succulents.
So join us on the 9th and 10th of December in the beating heart of Norwich nestled amongst our Olive Trees for the coolest Christmas Market EVER!
