With all that success and huge following from the people of Lancaster how could Jan not bring the magic back with extra sprinkles on top.

Jan has opened the new shop with local makers still involved with plenty of space for local creatives to still take part and sell their wares alongside Jan’s own designs. “Handmade Loveliness” will support local makers to produce gifts for local people.

So first the magic… will be truly spoilt for choice with so much on offer. You will find candles, soap, felt characters, bags, journals, fused glass, gents beard products, resin gifts, local prints, fabric gifts, children’s clothing, personalised button pictures, homewares, dog collars and dog gifts, jewellery and not forgetting Jan’s hugely popular LED lights. Truly gifts for everyone.
