The Little Christmas Shop Story
She and her husband Christopher have another store in the village and Kim had had her eye on the Little Christmas Shop’s spot for some time.
So when the property became available at the same time as her cousin Emily mentioned a desire to move on from her job in teaching, it was clearly meant to be!
Christopher helped make the dream a reality, painstakingly layering wooden slats across the interior walls to create the log cabin design.
The effect is extremely endearing and perfect for the size of the store, making for a very festive welcome. And matched fabulously to its friendly owners, ready to welcome you inside.
A lovely selection of ornaments are available for sale – from handmade felt Christmas puddings to cracker hat wearing brussel sprouts, and everything in between – supplemented by some bespoke products specifically for Ironbridge.
Emily designs and hand finishes wood slice mementos of the local area whilst Christopher adds mini pewter bridge statues to snowglobe baubles.

Next stop: The Polar Express!
And the recognition is much deserved. Four days after opening the country dove back into lockdown for a second time and the duo were forced to think creatively how to keep their fledgling business afloat.
Now in full flow however they are looking forward to their first fully operational festive season (fingers crossed!) as well as their pop-up shop at the Polar Express steam train experience nearby in Telford.
