Our Curated Gift Collection

So many businesses have been adversely affected by covid this year so it has been really heartening to see our local community supporting and promoting the #shoplocal message.  If you have 5 minutes do read some of their stories and, if circumstances allow support them where you can, with love Caroline & Jules x

Ruth's beautiful diffuser 'Firedance' has been The Barn's signature scent since we opened!  Ruth, along with her daughter and son run their luxury perfume and home fragrance business from Princes Risborough. 


Ruth is an internationally acclaimed 'nose' having created some of the worlds most beautiful perfumes and for many years has been a huge support to Jules since her mum died.  Ruth's new Ancient Frankincense candle is really special.


Ellie Good Illustration

Ellie is a wonderful illustrator and sustainability champion, who we have worked with on numerous project since we first opened our doors.  

Ellie uses her colourful, hand-drawn, painted and geometric illustrations to make sustainable homewares and paper goods, with the aim of bringing smiles to people's faces and keeping the planet happy.


Stacey, who runs Meet The Moon is a papercutting genius.  Stacey ran one of our very first workshops up at The Barn and is always a workshop sell-out.  Covid has had a big impact on her workshops this year, so we want to do as much as we can to spread the word about her beautiful handcrafted papercut illustrations and artwork.

As well as pre-cut cards, Stacey also sells templates and kits which you can use to create your own mini masterpieces.
