St Clement Danes School’s Winter Market is back and with it the opportunity to find unusual, unique and meaningful gifts for Christmas – and beyond.
‘Last time, I found so many brilliant gifts, particularly for those hard-to-buy-for people in my life,’ enthused a first-time visitor to the last Market, ‘special wreaths, with little dog biscuits tied on by ribbon, for my dog-owning friends; incredible locally-made chutney for my mum (and she has a particularly high bar for things culinary) and beer from just down the road by Paradigm Brewery for my brother, which he loved! I can’t wait to see what they have this year.’
The advance details for this year’s market look very promising. Beautiful, 100% handmade bath, home and relaxation treats from Castaway Cottage, a local company with global standard good looks and an ethical standard to match; see how Italy and Cumbria come together in Prada Rustica’s hand-crafted garden products; and the creativity of Kallisto Candle Company, which marries sophisticated looks with incredible scents – including their best-selling Merry Morning, Sweet Dreams and others cleverly inspired by Harry Potter – to name but three stallholders you’ll find this November.
The Market offers free, well-managed parking and an abundance of other creative businesses offering a range of services, gifts, cards, decorations, drinks and edibles, often offering unique Winter Market discounts, too.
The event changed its name from Christmas to Winter Market two years ago, to reflect the range of products on offer. There will be clothes, locally-produced craft beer, ale and gin gift sets, jewellery, artwork, contemporary craft, interior and home products, functional ceramics, garden products and pet gifts.
Pick up some SCD uniform at amazing prizes from the pre-loved school uniform stall – and when you need a break there will be a creperie van, mulled wine and a café for sustenance!
So, for all your birthday, wedding, anniversary, baby shower and Christmas inspiration and needs, a visit to the many stalls at St Clement Danes School Winter Market is an experience not to miss.
