Joining us this November, Momapaws Homecraft will be bringing her hand crafted gifts and keepsakes for all the animal lovers out there to our Christmas Market. Working out of the Kent countryside, Momapaws is inspired by her own dogs when crafting her range of animal inspired presents just perfect for that special Christmas gift.

To brighten up your home, check out Elaine Gill and her illustrations. Primarily painted with pen and watercolours, they add a splash of colour to any wall. Elaine usually paints buildings with stories, but if you have something in mind then bring those ideas with you to the Christmas market and see if you can get your own custom art piece.
