This is a great shop in Horncastle for picking up handmade souvenirs to bring home to family and friends. Hand knit gloves, paper products and gifts for baby all came home with me to the states. Reasonably priced too!

Picked up some great leaflets on walks around the area on our visit. Helpful staff. Would have given 5 bubbles but not open on a Sunday which isn't ideal if you want to visit the tourist information centre which is now located in here.
