Shipham Preschool held the event in the village hall and residents who passed through the doors were treated to a whole host of delights.
Young entrepreneurs Scott Virgo and Jess Hemmings sold their collection of jewellery, while youngster Emma Winby, aged five, sold her Christmas cards she designed herself, after winning a competition.
Santa pulled up his sleigh to make a special visit to children in the village and youngsters were able to meet him in his grotto.
