Cherry Tree Gifts and Cakes was established in 2009. We opened our first shop on June 2nd.
Our objective is to provide a shop that people would like coming to, offering gifts, cards, home ornaments, lighting and Jewellery. We also supply Coffees, Teas and Home made Cakes. All this without the hassle of having to go into town and pay to park your car.
The look and feel of the shop is just what we wanted and we have lots of regulars that keep coming back.
We try not to stock too many of any item so that we do not flood the market and all the local customers are not buying the same thing.
In 2011 we started selling online and we hope you like our website and find it easy to use.
In January 2017 we were forced to close our shop due to the sale of the premises we were leasing, but we are activlely seeking alternative suitable premises, until then we have had to reduce our range of products.
We hope that your online experience is as nice as it would be if you were actually in the shop.
Knit & Sew is a family business that opened in May 2015 to combat a lack of wool/haberdashery supply shops outside of Leicester city centre, which if you are to use, you first have to win the battle of getting into the city centre and parking as well as adding the time it takes & extra cost on to your venture which can put people off. So a shop in a quiet village location that has on street parking right outside already starts to appeal.
We have a solid range of stock that covers various yarn compositions & thicknesses interspersed with seasonal yarns for something a little bit different or special. As you will see from having a look on the website we also stock patterns, buttons, ribbon, knitting needles, crochet hooks, cross stitch fabric & threads, accessories & much more.
If a customer requires assistance we aim to help with honest answers & opinions (if asked for) so hopefully they leave the shop happy with their purchase & enjoy making whatever they have bought. Likewise, if you are in need of help and assistance please feel free to contact us (details are at the bottom of the page or an e-mail address is on the contact us page) & we will do our best to help you or point you in a direction of help if we are unable to.
Thank you for having a look around, we hope you find what you are looking for & if you are ever in the area, hope you’d drop in & see the shop for yourself.
