Who doesn’t love a Christmas market? The artisans. The great gifts. The festive spirit. We’re bringing all of this to our Exeter flagship store. From the 3rd to 5th December, pop into the shop and be greeted by beautiful products from small, local producers and find perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Goodbye Christmas shopping panic.
Friday 3rd December 10am to 4pm Sails & Canvas
Located in a quaint loft in the lovely Topsham, Sails & Canvas make beautiful products made out of recycled sails and marine canvas. Think roomy beach bags and shoppers, finished with coastal-inspired rope handles, cushions, baskets and bottle bags ideal for your next beachside walks. All the sails are washed but keep their original markings – telling a story of adventures gone by – and other details are sourced locally. It’s the ultimate re-using project and childhood friends Juliette and Mandi, who always dreamt of starting a business together, are passionate about it.
Saturday 4th December 10am to 4pm FlotsamPrints
Plymouth based printmaker Megan crafts original linocut artwork inspired by her passion for wild swimming. There are intricate water-inspired prints with a fairytale-like quality along with typographic designs and beautiful animal etchings. She turns her artwork into greeting cards, enamel mugs and more. With a real flavour of the coast and a distinctive style, buy these and you’ll be buying into the work of a flourishing artist. They make perfect gifts.
Sunday 5th December 11am to 5pm Otter Vale
Family-owned Otter Vale, based near Cullompton, are local in every sense. Hand producing chutneys, preserves, savoury jellies, piccalilli and more, they source their ingredients and packaging from the nearby areas. Their Devon Chutney has been famous for over 40 years and their award-winning recipes are renowned. The perfect gift for every food lover, make sure you buy some for yourself too.
