'Proper Lovely' is a new shop selling handmade and local gifts, artwork and crafts, and will open at 9am on Saturday June 1 at Unit 16, Marketgate, next door to Mountain Warehouse.

The shop, which will be shared by a group of artists, makers and crafters, will see five local businesses join forces.

· Airy Fairys – personalised gifts, decorations and keepsakes run by Lisa Higham

· The Bay Botanicals – handmade, eco-friendly soaps using organic, sustainable and natural ingredients, run by Michelle Doyle

· Ella & Jack – hand-crafted clothes and gifts for children, run by Liz Hartley

· Fine Lines Art – a crafty mix of arts and gifts, alongside local scene artwork, run by best friends Myra Weir and Jane Pullen

· Lidia Ranns Art – artwork of local landmarks of the North West and beyond, run by artist Lidia Ranns

The shop will be open seven days a week, Monday to Saturday 9am-5.30pm and Sunday 10am-4pm.

Lisa Higham, one of the Proper Lovely shop partners, said: “We can’t wait to open our doors and welcome people to the Proper Lovely Shop.

“I am sure that our little shop will have something for everyone. Between us, our local businesses have been operating for decades, and to now have the opportunity to open a shop together – it really is a dream come true for us.

“We are passionate about what we do and believe in the power of shopping local and supporting local. We’re proud to be bringing something different to Lancaster and we hope you love our crafts and gifts as much as we love making them.”
