There are only 47 days until Christmas, and if you’re anything like us, we are only just starting to think about all the preparations.  Shopping, cooking, parties, kids Nativity plays, etc., etc.  What we all need is our own helpful army of Elves to help us make our family Christmas dreams come true.  Well whether you’re on the naughty or nice list, we can help.  H.O.P.E have a fabulous new collection of gifts which we’ll be launching at all the wonderful Christmas and Artisan markets we are booked into, starting with Nantwich Christmas Lights Market next Friday 15th November 12-7.30 and again on Saturday 16th in Nantwich 9-4.

If it’s our costumes you’re interested in, all our Nativity costumes are now half price, making way for new stock all round.  The wonderful heavily quilted Silver Shining Star (as seen in The Nativity movies with Mr Poppy) is now only £9.99 and is great fun for the kids all year round too.  From our enormously cute furry snowman with oversized head and carrot nose (only £39.99) to our Christmas Pudding, we have the perfect costume! Have a little browse of the site, or why not call us if you can’t find what you’re looking for, not everything is online… can’t wait to hear from you.


Have you seen a sweeter pumpkin? With orange and white lollipops making up the “hair,” most of the design is done. It’s minimal carving and maximal fun.

Got your costume sorted yet?  We’ve got some amazing bargains in our ex hire listings over on the Fancy Dress – Halloween page and tons more ‘off the shelf costumes’ in stock at heavily discounted prices, which haven’t made it onto our website just yet – give us a bell and give us a try – we love a challenge 01270 258729.
