Local artisans

Handmade glass christmas tree decorations

Isabel Sargent Christmas decorations

Delicate Christmas tree decorations from local artist Isabel Sargent, who works from her studio in Hastings. She creates these glass decorations by carefully selecting the colours, cutting all the glass by hand and assembling each tree individually, so each one is unique.

The English soap range

The English Soap Company

Be spoilt for choice, when selecting one of the beautiful soaps from The English Soap Company range. This local Kent company was inspired by vintage design and the luxurious soaps of a bygone age. The only problem you will have is in selecting which one you want to take home with you.
