Welcome to Shop Window – a showcase where twelve expert artisans are displaying their wares. Inside, you’ll find a dazzling array of beautiful products, handcrafted and most of them a unique one-off.

Use this online catalogue as if you were holding it in your hands; a simple click will turn the pages backwards and forwards. However, Shop Window has the advantage that you can also enlarge each image for closer inspection by clicking on it. We can only show a small sample of each artist’s creative output, but every entry has a link to their website, where you can see further details, check out their entire range and shop!

As Christmas approaches, Shop Window is a selection of gorgeous gift suggestions for your loved ones (and yourself!). They are made with passion by craftspeople, for you to treasure today and for years to come.
