Kent Advent Calendar - Day 2 - Blighty's

For day 2 of our #KentAdventCalendar, we’ve chosen Blighty’s, a quintessentially British gift shop in the historic Wealden village of Cranbrook just four miles from Barnfield House. Camilla Cogger, who manages this fabulous independent family-run gift shop, loves spotting and supporting talented artists, designers and craftspeople, and makes a point of only sourcing products designed and made in Britain. A fabulous place to pick up a gift, it is overflowing with gorgeous Christmas-themed items right now, from scented advent candles to 3D advent calendars to ceramic star Christmas tree decorations.

Camilla Cogger at Blighty's gift shop CranbrookCamilla has recently launched the own-brand Blighty’s Collection, starting with stunning scented candles hand-made close by in Tenterden, and a beautiful ceramic heart featuring Cranbrook’s famous Union Mill, hand-made in Gloucestershire by Broadlands Pottery – super gifts for our holiday renters to purchase as a souvenir of their stay! Blighty’s – an informal term for Britain coined early in the 19th Century – is also a ‘Just a Card’ superhero, supporting a campaign encouraging people to shop local and independent. And if you can’t shop local, you can always shop online . at https://blightys.uk/
