Our local businesses need our support now more than ever! Small businesses have missed out on craft fairs and Christmas markets at their busiest time of the year. Why not get online and support our local businesses as much as you can!
Whether you are looking for alpaca socks or artisan bakers, stocking fillers or Northumberland keepsakes there are lots of local businesses who can help, and who need our help right now.
The Hearth Arts Centre in Horsley, Northumberland, may be closed at the moment but many of its artists have their own online shops. Take a look at Jina Gelder Illustrations for some super cute Xmas decorations (just look at Mr Fox above!). Jina also sells calendars, gifts and homewares as well as beautiful original watercolour paintings and pet portraits.
*NORTHUMBERLAND* Let’s support local businesses this Christmas! is a great Facebook page showcasing hundreds of amazing small businesses in Northumberland. It’s a brilliant place to find some really unique gifts. From arts, crafts and bespoke jewellery to Christmas wreaths, decorations and hampers, there’s something for everyone!
The Milkhope Centre is a country food and shopping destination based at Blagdon in Northumberland. You can still visit the cafe and farm shop, but the other small businesses based there also need your support.
At NewcastleGateshead’s Virtual Christmas Gift Shop you can browse the online shelves packed with festive gift ideas, experiences, hampers, annual passes and vouchers.
Don’t forget our local towns such as Corbridge, Hexham, Morpeth and Tynemouth, all of whom have small businesses trying to stay afloat. Please take a look online and support as many as you can!
Here at Burradon Farm we are also looking forward to welcoming visitors back again after lockdown. Why not take advantage of our special offer, or treat your loved ones to a Burradon Farm Gift Voucher for Christmas!
