All Our Own Crafts 2015 – Grand Opening this Saturday!

I’m soooo excited to see that the “All Our Own Crafts” team are back, even bigger and better than before!

Many of the 40 local crafters in the shop are NHM Readers and Supporters and I’m delighted to see that there are so many people involved.

Congrats to Tracy, Kate and the team and I’m sure it will be a HUGE success!

All Our Own Crafts 2015

A new POP-Up craft shop in Festival Place, Basingstoke will launch with a grand opening on Saturday 18th April 2015.

This project was devised by Basingstoke residents Tracy Braybrook and Kate Donohoe who originally opened All Our Own Crafts in October 2014 for 3 months, giving local residents a unique chance to retail their crafts within the busy shopping centre. This will be the second time All Our Own Crafts will be in the centre, with the shop opening in April.

Festival Place have granted the pop-up shop the use of an empty unit opposite Laura Ashley for a two month period. It will display the crafts of 40 local people.

All Our Own Crafts will hold a grand opening from 9am on Saturday 18th April 2015 with lots of fun activities within the shop.

Normal opening hours will be Monday to Saturdays 9am to 6pm and on Sundays 11am to 5pm.

Santa’s Grotto’s/Father Christmas Visits in North Hampshire 2013

I put out a request on NorthHants Mum in September, asking if anyone has any suggestions for future posts.

Wendy sent me a great message asking me if I could research a decent garden centre for Christmas where the children will find a good Santa.

I’ve also added a few more places where you can meet Father Christmas, that aren’t garden centres.

Please let me know if I’ve missed any!

Hopefully the below helps!
