Here in Wicklow, we have a huge array of talented craftspeople some of whom sell all year round and some who make Christmas their season for selling whilst dedicating the rest of the year to creating. You will find everything from artisan food to wood turning including jewellery, wall art, needlecraft, leatherwork, cakes, bakes, chutneys and relishes of all manner sitting side by side with transition year mini companies and kids craft creations. Another great reason to shop local this season.
