10 Small World Shopping Hours left!

At 4p.m. on Thursday 23 December the Small World volunteers  shut up shop for the festive break.

This means, you only have a short space of time to buy any last minute gifts, groceries or wrapping paper.

If you are looking for alternatives to traditional gift wrap, we have gorgeous recycled wrapping paper and Indian newspaper bags.

We are open:
Saturday 18th 10-12
Tuesday 21st 10 - 12 & 2-4
Thursday 23rd 10-12 & 2-4

Thank you for your continued support and customer during 2010.  It really is very much appreciated by all the volunteers, and makes such a difference to the fair trade producers in the developing world.

Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. 

We re-open at 10 a.m. on Tuesday 11th January.

Gift ideas that won't break the bank

Christmas is only three weeks away -have you started your shopping yet?  No matter now organised you are, it is always wise to keep a few handy presents in reserve. 

Do you need small items for your children's classmates?  We have beautiful handcrafted friendship bracelets for just 40p.

Are you looking for a present for the teacher?  How about a twist on the "apple for the teacher" idea - a beautiful apple-shaped acacia wood bowl  - only £4!

Men are notoriously tricky to buy for but we have some seriously cool gifts including wallets made from recycled tyres, handcrafted journals and a range of hot and spicy sauces.
Is your workplace doing a 'Secret Santa'?  It's not easy to buy something for someone you don't know terribly well.  Why not opt for a practical item?  We have some tried and tested gifts such as kitchen utensils or glassware?

One of the nicest parts of the festive season is visting friends and family.  Sometimes invitations come out of the blue - that's when you need our Belgian chocolates - the perfect hostess gift.

The Small World has lots of small price tag items, most under £10.  There are far too many to show here so do pop in and have a look for yourself.

If you are stumped for ideas, we also sell gift vouchers!
