New Laceby gift shop bringing something different to the village
A new shop in Laceby is hoping to bring something different to the small village with its range of hand made crafts and gifts. The Crafty Gift Boutique, on the High Street, has over 40 different traders selling all sorts of products like handmade soap, crochet dolls and even children's clothing. After spending time at home making her own creations, music teacher Helen Harrison felt it was time to branch out. Despite the uncertainty posed by the Cost of Living Crisis, she didn't have a second thought about opening the shop. Now, she's hoping to help other creators who may be struggling to get their name out there.

I had the idea of opening a shop right from the start, but wanted to get my business up and running to start with. "When this shop came up, I had to take the chance. A lot of crafters don't get the chance to sell elsewhere apart from on their own platforms and here we've got about 40 different businesses." For Helen, the personal touch makes it all worth it. "Hand made is so unique, that's why it's so much better. I immediately wanted to make sure I did it in Laceby as there's nothing like this here. She added: "Crafting is just so relaxing and allows you to unwind." However, with the cost of living crisis, Helen says she had to put the thought of bills and costs to the back of her mind. "I Just had to put all that to one side and focus on what I wanted to do. There are over 40 different traders in The Crafty Gift Boutique in Laceby (Image: GrimsbyLive/Donna Clifford) "I also think this helps other people out too during a difficult time. It gives those who may be struggling with their business a place to show it off and it's a chance for people to get themselves out there." She added: "It also helps the people of Laceby who want a special present, but don't want to travel miles for it" So far, residents have loved the new shop and in time Helen is hoping to deliver workshops to those who are interested. Jayne Greenough and Denise Popplewell have their creations on display and are proud of what the shop has achieved. Jayne said: "I think people are more bothered about what they choose as a present these days so shops like this are perfect for getting something that you can't buy anywhere else." Denise added: "It's so good to have a place where we can actually display our creations, you can only do so much online. "It's like having our own little network as well, which is especially great while times are so hard for everyone. It's great to see so much talent under one roof as well."
