In the third of our 'Shop Local' articles we went for a wander down Phelps Parade and The Pippin...

Phelps Parade is where the main hustle and bustle of the town is. Calne Market takes place here every Friday and the Calne Springs Forward Craft and Gift market is held monthly.

You can 'Shop, Eat and Drink' with Two Hours Free Parking in the Calne Heritage Quarter throughout the year, funded by Calne Town Council.



 G & S Jewellers is a family run business offering  Gold and Silver Jewellery, servicing and repairs carried out in their own workshop, watches, rings, earrings and a whole range of gifts for all occasions.


gsj2They have some beautiful stock including some very reasonably priced fun earrings which would make the perfect stocking filler or 'thank you' gift. 

The shop is open from 10am - 4pm Tuesday to Saturday, alternatively you can see what is on offer on their website HERE

Alongside the books, the shop also stocks a lovely range of greetings cards and gifts.
They told us: "Every Christmas we have an abundance of wonderful stock, from cards, gifts, ccb1adult and children's books, nativity scenes, advent calendars and candles, 2021 calendars and much more. We hope you can shop locally with us over Christmas and other businesses to help the economy of Calne to thrive over the festive period and into 2021.
