V is for

V is for Visit. A local museum, art gallery, craft fair or shop selling handmade items.
You don’t have to buy anything, just smiling and complimenting and absorbing the wonders will make the staff happy
My favourite local shop for this is Leela in Magdalen Street, Exeter. She’s just opened up her website, so you can even take a look, virtually.


The owner is always super friendly and the stock is to die for, ethically sourced and really well priced. She’s even chatty to me – and I hardly ever buy anything, except as gifts for people I can’t make jewellery for!
