Ingatestone is a delightful village, surrounded by some lovely countryside and with great transport links to Chelmsford and London. The High Street has maintained alot of it's original charm, with many old buildings still in use either as shops, pubs or private residencies. 

Ingatestone and Fryerning Community Centre is situated on the High Street and has it's own large paying public car park.

 'The early bird catches the worm' is a phrase often heard, and on this occasion fits perfectly, as this event will offer shoppers the opportunity to get some beautifully designed and handcrafted gifts in good time for Christmas. If you are looking for presents that are a bit different and you like good quality handmade products then you'll find a great selection of items to choose from.

Pop Art Cakes

Pop Art Cakes are bespoke baked treats on a stick!



Davniglass is a small family owned and staffed glass studio.

We use the same traditional techniques developed by 'Louis Comfort Tiffany' who, at the turn of the century, produced his famous lighting and windows.

We manafacture almost anything from a simple wall light to a large pendant light, and the design of our mirrors can be created to compliment lighting or features.

Wild Source

feed your skin the way nature intended

Using nutritious oils rich in vitamins and healing properties that protect and restore your skin Wild Source is fresh, beautiful skincare. I use organic when I can and source as local as possible, even herbs from our garden such as comfrey, lavender, calendula and rosemary.
From cream to ointments, toners, body butters, sugar scrubs and serums, restore your skin with nature.


Felted Flowers

At Felted Flowers we use Merino wool tops to create pieces of felt using a wet felt process. I use the felt to create rose/flower corsages and felted pictures and bowls.

My husband makes fantastic bird boxes, crafted from cedar and all have natural slate roofs. Boxes are available in a variety of sizes and are painted or coated with a linseed preservative.

All our products are lovingly handmade and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do creating them.

Dorus Mhor

Inspired by a lifelong fascination with ornate Tweed and a Fine Art degree in Sculpture, in 2010 Elizabeth Bloom created Dorus Mhor.

Dorus Mhor celebrates the characteristic beauty of fabric through it's application to accessories.

In our jewellery range every fabric remnant becomes an exquisite tactile gem on the final product, and our ties aim to punctuate men’s fashion with the unique. Each piece is handcrafted using meticulously sourced fabrics.

Gavin's Crafts

I am Gavin Kruyer. I produce hand painted glass, a range of scented candles, wax tarts and simmering granules and some “New Age” items.  I also specialise in jewellery made from freshwater pearls and semi precious stones

 All my items are hand made to the highest standard.

Oakleaf Jewellery

As anyone can tell from looking at my jewellery, I am a gardener.  From my earliest age, I have been spellbound by the diversity and beauty of leaves and flowers.  When I started making jewellery, even projects which were supposed to be abstract, eventually ended up as natural forms.  I have now surrendered to the fact that nothing can surpass the beauty of a garden and I hope in some small way I have been able to pay homage to nature in my jewellery.



Unique Knitwear

Juliet Bryson's Unique Knitwear specializes in handcrafted, luxury knitted garments and accessories, predominately made from natural yarns.  These are often embellished with crochet and beaded additions to produce knitwear that is more than a one-season wonder.  Pieces can also be commissioned in the customer's choice of colours.



At Paper Wings I create beautiful handmade pictures. Each picture is individually made.  I have many different pieces all presented in deep edge box frames in either a natural or painted finish.

Pictures can be purchased from the variety of examples already made or can be made to order for specific designs and personalised requests.


Dapri Designs

My name is Princess Ajani, and I am married with a lovely teenage son. I have always wanted to make jewellery and work with beads, so a few years ago this company was established.

I started with small designs, later moving on to more complicated styles of beaded jewellery. As I grew more confident, I began experimenting with world cultural styles, mixing African and European beads, using the finest beads ever.

All my pieces are beautifully handcrafted and very unique. Most of my beaded jewellery is custom made.
