The Christmas Arcade has now closed but, never fear, I am now selling my gilded wares on Two Red Trees.
I am selling a range of products at The Christmas Arcade at Somerset House, London, this winter. Look out for eglomise drink coasters, golden walnuts perfect for the Christmas tree and silver leaf mirrors in restored antique frames.
