AN ARTIST is this week showing readers how you can pick up products with a personal touch when you choose to Buy Local.

Buy Local campaign supporter Ed Fuller runs art and design firm Cross Cat Designs from a workshop at his Middle Rasen home.

Ed, who set up his business in 2009 working mainly for family and friends, believes Market Rasen has a lot to offer people who are looking for “that personal touch”.

The arty businessman now has a thriving company creating unique pieces of art and design for people throughout the area.

“I can create anything the client wants. I speak to people face to face and make special things no-one else will have,” said Ed.

“Individually-designed magic wands are popular at the moment, which is great because I find carving very rewarding.”

Ed paints children’s toys on their bedroom walls, makes portraits of people’s pets, designs playrooms and nurseries and much more.

He said: “It’s important to stay local as much as possible to get the best possible personal touch. People often say to me ‘that’s so much better than I wanted’ and it’s really exciting.

“If you take a look around Market Rasen there are a lot of good shops selling some lovely things, but the problem is getting people to see that. Sadly, a lot of people see the closed shops before the shops that are open.

“Rather than driving through Market Rasen, people should get out of their cars and have a walk through the town to see for themselves.

“The town is still very much alive.”
