Stone Advent Windows 2017

For the eighth year running a giant community Advent Calendar is being unveiled day by day in Stone shop windows from 1st December to 23rd. This year the theme is the Christmas Story Characters so check out all the amazing creations over the month. We thank all those who are hosting or who have created each window.

The decorated windows will remain on display over the Christmas period until 2nd January.
