There is definitely an Autumnal feel in the air which got me thinking that it is only 21 days until the huge barn doors will be open to welcome you all to Christmas at the Barn 2014. This years' event is a 2 day celebration of the festive season & beautiful, locally handmade unique items which are guaranteed to make perfect gifts this Christmas.
Preparations are well underway for this years event. All 21 stalls on both days of the event are sold out & we guarantee that you will find some truly unique, beautiful gifts for friends and family. Christmas at the Barn 2014 is going to be BIGGER, BETTER & EVEN MORE PACKED with festive loveliness (impossible I hear you cry!)
Listed below are details of this years stall holders (PART 1). So put the date in your diary & we will see you all soon!
