The Trove Cambridge is excited to be announcing the launch of an online shop with our lovingly curated range of #CambsCreativeTreasures inspired themed gift boxes that feature high quality prints and products by artists, designers and makers from across Cambridgeshire, UK. We are pleased to be able to support many local creatives and independent businesses through this venture – and with more in the making are looking to grow the shop over the coming year and be able to work with many more!
We hit “go live” on Friday 29th October with four of our boxes which are: The Rest Calmly Box, The Pink Posy Box, The Wildflower Box and our limited edition ’12 Days Of Christmas’ Advent Calendar Box. Later this month you can expect to also find two children’s gift boxes, The Little Explorer Box and The Little Bookworm Box, as well as the first of our seasonal ‘Make Your Own’ crafting kits designed with both adults and kids in mind.
The treasures boxes are perfect for gifting but also make great “self-treat” boxes! As well as shopping the collection here you can also get in touch to “build your own” box – pick and choose or mix and match the items in store. We will check if stock is available and advise on order processing and delivery times.
Supporting local businesses from across the county and bringing you 12 days of beautiful, consumable, useful and/or edible treasures to unwrap as a countdown to the winter holidays. All items have been carefully sourced and pieced together. The advent calendar is available to pre-order now and will be shipped from Monday 15th November 2021 onwards. Don’t miss out – order yours here today!
From decking the halls and eco-conscious gift wrapping to artisanal sweet treats and festive scents to fill your home – the calendar contains a superb mix of high quality products from 12 local artists, makers and independent businesses. Also included is one of our new seasonal ‘Make Your Own’ crafting kits.
Wrapped in tissue paper, tied with jute twine and finished with a numbered tag (1-12). The items come in a black magnetic gift box complete with black ribbon, a sprig of preserved eucalyptus and gold wax seal. Our luxury advent box is one-of-a-kind and has been envisaged as well as designed to have a fun element of surprise! Keep scrolling to take a look at the full list of featured businesses.
Featured businesses include: Ely Fudge Company, Mystical Sky Studio, Ignium Candle Company, Wooden Treasure, The Cambridge Soap Company, Sue Rapley Art, Abi Stevens Illustration, The Little Fenland Eco Shop, Sewing Daze, Sleepy Bee Studio, Harry Specters and The Trove Cambridge.
It has been an honour to work with and support these local business owners to bring you something truly special this Christmas time. Part of our mission here at The Trove Cambridge is to provide a connection between the local creative community and the wider Cambridgeshire community by promoting the ethos of shopping and supporting local. The online shop launch is another way of aiding us to achieve this aim.
From championing local creatives and businesses for many years across our online platforms the launch of our online shop felt like a natural progression – and with plans to bring something to a physical venue in 2022, we look forward to seeing where this may lead. Not only for us but for the many hundreds of others in our network too!
