Little Whims Gift Store
A brand new independent gift shop has opened in Whitehaven’s Market Place last month, bringing unique handmade gifts to the town centre, along with beautiful cards, accessories, and homeware.
Little Whims, opened in early August in one of the Market Place buildings that received funding to be renovated through Copeland Borough Council’s Townscape Heritage Initiative.
Lara has been selling her unique handmade gifts, including wooden name blocks, festive decorations, and various decorative products for some time via Facebook. She will continue to trade online, but the handmade produces will now also be available in the shop.
Lara makes all the handmade products herself, and caters for many special occasions, including baby gifts, birthday presents and festive products. Her wooden letter blocks are one of her most popular products, and something she is very proud of:
“I love spending time making the gifts. It makes me really happy to see photos that my customers have sent me of their Little Whim gifts on display in their homes.”
Her new giftware range has been selected specifically to fit in with her own products, and includes products from Sass & Belle, Belo & Me and the very popular children’s products by Moulin Roty.
The shop is open every day apart from Sundays, and full details can be found on the Facebook Page @littlewhimdesigns
