* Top 20 is based on a single store number. Many of our makers have 2 store numbers so if they were combines might be a different result, but only the top one by value or quantity is shown.

Thank you very much to everyone who continues to make and buy locally. It genuinely makes such a difference to lots of families and individuals in the area to have people buying their products. We currently have 211 local people with their hand made items in the store!

Happy new year to all, and thank you again for your continued support.
