The Lowdown on Local Sellers

You’d better not shout, you’d better not cry,

You’d better not pout; I’m telling you why:

Santa Claus is going online!

He’s in his workshop but instead of the shelves,

He’s online browsing with his little elves,

Santa Claus is going online!

With lockdown upon us once more and Santa’s little helpers shopping online, You’re Welcome recreates that special Christmas Market experience. We bring you the lowdown on some of the county’s finest online shops. 

Owletts End Interior

What is Christmas without a candle or two? This local site sells wax melts, reed diffusers, decorations and the famous candle. Have a look here:

The Sugar Rose Kitchen

And we can’t forget the cake! The kitchen offers all sorts of yummy tastes to keep you sweet this Christmas. Brownies in the post is a great idea and with six scrumptious flavours to choose from, your tastebuds will be tingling like tinsel!

Broadlands Pottery

Whether you’re looking for Christmas decorations or something for your special person, browse through Broadlands Pottery’s wide selection of beautiful homemade pottery. I’m a big animal lover and went straight to their pet section. It did not disappoint! 

Hearts for Hope

Just over the border, Worcestershire-based Dan founded Hearts for Hope when he was recently furloughed. Now he and his wife sell a wide range of eco-friendly Christmas decorations with 10% of the proceeds donated to charities who have had to cancel events this year. Not only is this a great cause, I’m sure you will agree that these decorations look gorgeous. With their vivid verbal descriptions, I was able to get a good idea of what I was looking at without being able to see the pictures. Check them out here:

Kershaw’s Bespoke Gifts

If you like to have that woody aroma in your home, have a look through this shop to find reasonably priced wooden ornaments and keepsakes. They had some great furnishings to brighten up children’s bedrooms.

Toy Temptations

Speaking of the little ones, look no further than this wonderful toyshop of treats. They offer free local delivery and 15% off when ordering online. Now that’s what I call a magical Christmas.

Bubbly Heaven

Christmas is so exciting for children and you can make it more so by giving them their own magical bubble or two. As well as offering free delivery on all sorts of bubble-related bundles of fun, Bubbly Heaven sell local sensory toys. I’m the first to admit that I’m a big kid and couldn’t resist buying myself a treat from here..

We hope you’ll find something for all your family and friends and please comment if you have more ideas of where to shop this Christmas.
