Christmas Open Houses in Hove 2019


A menagerie of artists and makers, showing at 28 Osborne Villas in Hove. We have, unapologetically, tailored our wares for Christmas, in the hope of offering work that will bring cheer and delight, and tempt people with all budgets, looking for something special as a gift for others, or to treat themselves.
