Let’s get Christmas Wrapped up in Frome

Usually at this time of year, we’re making our lists and checking them twice and braving the busy high streets and Christmas markets to get ready for the big day.

It’s a little bit different this year – our shops are closed and markets have been cancelled. But there’s no need to panic!

Thankfully almost all of Frome’s wonderful independent shops are continuing to trade, offering online shopping or phone and collect services and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that they can open their doors again in December.

But if you can’t wait until then, we’ve brought virtual Christmas markets to Frome!

We’ve created two spaces which allow makers and sellers to share their work and let you know how you can buy their wares. So whether you’re looking for the perfect present for a loved one, a secret Santa gift or just fancy treating yourself, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

Discover Frome virtual Christmas market – this space is for all the creative makers based or living within the BA11 postcode area. From stunning handmade glass work, to gorgeous bespoke jewellery or a hand-crafted Christmas sack.

If you’re a small business in Frome making and selling your own products and would like to be featured please contact gtomlinson@frometowncouncil.gov.uk with five images, a description of your business and relevant contact details.

Let’s Get Christmas Wrapped up in Frome Facebook group – a seasonal Facebook group for small businesses in the BA11 postcode area to showcase and sell their wares in the run up to Christmas. Each seller will have a virtual stall with an album of pictures – all you need to do is browse the main feed or the albums, find some festive gift ideas and contact the stall holder to purchase.

Need something for your nan? Stumped what to get a teacher? If you’re stuck for ideas, as it’s a Facebook page you can ask for recommendations and the stall holders will reply to your post with a selection of gifts.

If you would like a stall please message us your details via the group and confirm your postcode.

Happy shopping!
