Tying up loose ends for our Christmas Shopping on Sunday December 7th (10 till 5)

Start celebrating Christmas here with an eclectic mix of passionate people selling tasty treats, stocking fillers, decorations and special presents to suit every pocket.

*Katy Cox’s Mighty Fine Things include locally sourced homemade fruit liqueurs, preserves and Christmas goodies. Lots of seasonal tastes and ideal presents.

*Rune, The Norse Baker bakes fabulous Norwegian biscuits and cakes to bring a Scandi twist to your celebrations. Also Stollen from local baker Toby Schwenn.

*Hiroko Aono-Bilson, textile artist and writer is just back from a visit to Japan with some beautiful kimonos. Special presents for special friends or treat yourselves.

*Rob Wheeler, a Suffolk potter who has supplied The Kitchen Garden since we started. Lovely raku and sponge-wear pots, and his famous bantam eggcups.

*Frances Prescott is a magazine make-up artist, offering advice and highlighting her products. An appointment with her would make a much-appreciated present.

*Cranbrook Iron make bespoke ironwork for home and garden. I’ve just bought a beautiful rusty curled fern that’s on my kitchen table.

*Martin Pamment from Kent Beach Art is a beachcomber who turns flotsam and jetsam into decorative house and garden artworks. Also painted pebbles from Jane.

*Odds and ends I think you’ll like from The Kitchen Garden. The usual eclectic mix: vintage, garden and henkeeping stuff and my new book – Flying the Coop.

I’ll also be selling hardly used gardening books I’ve reviewed, at hugely reduced prices. Funds will go to help the Ebola Crisis, as will the proceeds from refreshments: glasses of mulled wine and spiced biscuits.
