Christmas is fast approaching and it is always difficult to find that something special to give as a present.

Now a new shop in Market Rasen is offering beautiful and unusual handcrafted gifts – with many unique one offs.

Little Shop of Treasures can be found at The Hub in the town’s Union Street, run by a co-operative of local crafters and artists.

Jewellery, bags, glassware, cards, paintings and many other gift ideas are on sale.

All items are handmade, with many of the producers taking commissions for that extra-special item.

“Little Shop of Treasures gives crafters an outlet for their items, without them having to open their own shops,” said Hub administrator Stella Tuplin, “and we would welcome more crafters or artists to come on board.”

The shop is staffed by volunteers and also acts as a training opportunity for vocational qualifications in retail and customer care.

Opening times are 10am to 4pm each day, except Thursday and Sunday.
