Christmas at Masham Gallery: Shopping guide 2014
Our gift guides this year are designed to take you through a huge range of items we have in the gallery, starting with the smaller ‘stocking fillers’ and little treats, and gradually working up to the all-out budget-blowers. In each installment we have carefully selected a range of things we think appeal to the widest range of people, but don’t forget this is still only a snapshot of what we have inside the gallery, so if you are still stuck for ideas you might want to pop in and see us.
Much of our stock is handmade, often by local makers around Yorkshire. Our toys are either British made or fairly traded, and we’re proud to offer a unique collection of durable and sustainable wooden toys instead of plastic ones. Each item on our gift guide list has details of it’s makers/origins, so you’ll know plenty about what you’re choosing.
