I visited Okehampton today and came across this little gem by sheer chance; and I'm so glad I did! When I first walked in, I was greeted by a very freindly shop assistant (who turned out to be the owner). I thought, "This is nice". A good range of cute, different and very fairly priced gifts and goodies. I bought some vanilla incense sticks, a cat-face pencil case and a hand made cushion. All for £20. What isn't obvious, or even evident, is that all the products in the shop are either locally sourced, or ethically sourced if not local. The shop owner searches for people who are at a disadvantage, around the world, who make the type of product she wants to sell, and buys from them. Some of the gifts were made by a family in Japan who were displaced. I took an immediate liking to this shop and I recommend you visit if you're in the area. Did I mention that the cushion I bought was hand made by local Okehampton residents living in sheltered housing due to the lack of work in Okehampton? The cushion is adorable, something of a style of its own; enough to compete with any of the big high Street brands! The shop owner is heavily involved in supporting the local community and is already coordinating events to help include the children from impoverished families in the local communities. She'll certainly help raise awareness in the community. Final thoughts: visit and buy some goodies. If you're only passing through Okehampton, or are just visiting the supermarkets, utilise your parking to the max; walk the 1 minute walk to this little gem!

The Woolly Beader

Red Lion Yard, Okehampton EX20 1AW, UK – 01837 657614

The most helpful, wonderful Donna came to my rescue after realising I was a bit short of some beads, (Like all of them!) for a project that had a deadline. Got in touch one evening, spoke the next morning, precious beads dispatched that day, and having done their bit, it is now down to Royal Mail and my nimble fingers to complete the project on the deadline which is 3 working days away. Thank you Woolly Beader, you have given me the best chance!!!!

Good for beading

Rob Greaves Photography

The Bungalow, Paradise Meadow, Church Street, Okehampton EX20 1JF, UK – 07757 378456

It's easy for an anonymous person to give five stars for a service, but I worked with Rob Greaves on my feature film "The Lives We Lead" and a collection of photography gigs surrounding it and he was the most organized, enthusiastic and hard-working person on set. Rob's compositions are exquisite. He has a brilliant eye for the craft and a deep, thorough technical knowledge of cameras, lenses and software that only comes from extensive hands-on practice. Rob is focused and flexible to work with and I can only complain that he no longer resides in Sydney, Australia (where we shot our film), because I have been unable to come across another Director of Photography with his skill and finesse. I highly recommend him without hesitation.

We had the pleasure of Rob photograph our engagement shoot with the help of his lovely wife. Rob was very professional but easy going. He and his wife made my partner and myself feel very relaxed and comfortable which made the photos very natural. All the photos turned out great, I struggled to find a favourite. I would highly recommend him!
