Shop

Opening hours Monday to Friday 10.00am until 2.00pm

Our shop is stocked with items handmade by local crafters from Charnwood as well as volunteers from our own handicraft group.

The range includes hand knits, glassware, jewellery, sewn items, paintings and greeting cards all unique and lovingly made.

Each sale helps towards the charitable aims of John Storer Charnwood and its activities in John Storer House. The shop is staffed by volunteers who are all crafters themselves and are happy to assist you with your browsing, whether you are considering a treat for yourself, your home or a gift.

Potential crafters with new ranges and living within the Charnwood area are invited to contact us to discuss stocking your crafts in John Storer House Shop.
