Join us at Water Lane’s Christmas Market

Our first Water Lane Christmas Market is on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th December, and we very much hope you will come along to dip your toe into some festive cheer with good food and a wander around the market. The irony of this newsletter landing in your inbox on Black Friday, surely a contender for the most commercially crazed day of the year, is certainly not lost on us. However, we have gathered a small and select group of creatives, producers and makers to set up their stalls under the stretch awning, who will be selling their handcrafted and original wares, for more thoughtful and considerate gifting, this Christmas.

Come for Water Lane hot chestnut soup, flatbreads and hot chocolate, before choosing your Christmas tree and wreath to take home and shop for beautiful and original gifts, including handmade cards and stationery, candles, baskets, skin care, charcuterie, wine and homewares.

Bear and Born Cards & Gifting | Bloom and Burn Floral Styling | Crafty Basketry | Faded Shed Homes & Garden | Heavenly Herbal skincare | Kate Rundell Art & Cards | Mulberry Tree Forge | Pig Smith Charcuterie | Phoebe Connolly stationery | Pumpkin Lottie jams and chutneys | Rae Lifestyle homewares | Silverhill Farm cordials | Simply Brocante | Tillingham Wines | Wild Planet Aromatherapy
Starting this Saturday, we will have a range of Norway Spruce and Nordmann Fir Christmas trees for sale, plus a selection of pot grown trees. We are working exclusively with Hole Park who grow trees just six miles away from Water Lane in Rolvenden. First come, first served.

Created in association with floral styling studio, Bloom and Burn, our wreaths are made using foliage from our neighbours on the old Tongswood Estate and a collection of dried flowers and seed heads that we grew over the summer including Ammi, Larkspur, Opium Poppy, Bupleurum. Each wreath is festively adorned with a velvet ribbon in subtle colours and costs £60.

Wreaths will be available from 1st December, and we’ll have some available to buy in the shop and available to pre-order.

As ever, we look forward to welcoming you to Water Lane,

Nick and Ian
