Beautiful handmade items are on sale, ranging from traditional jewellery and paintings, to novelty gift ideas and colourful homeware.

GB Artisans is the brainchild of Amanda and Gill Sims who decided to follow their passion.

Gill said the idea came to them over an evening meal and they decided to put their experience of visiting countless craft fairs to good use.

But as well as fulfilling a personal passion for art, the pair say they hope the new business can help promote some of the great work carried out by local independent artists.
