For the past month, we have been counting down the days until Christmas with our very own Live Advent Calendar displayed in our window in our Hove shop. Each day, we revealed a new piece of artwork that was created by either our fabulous customers or dedicated team members. We would like to say a huge thank you to those who took part, and we can now enjoy looking back at all the entries. Furthermore, we would like to congratulate our three competition winners: Elsa Hubbard, Janet Stocker and Lucie Maynard!
