Chester Merchants Press Release


Remember to dress up and put out your gingerbread "flat man" for the holidays.

We are all about "shopping local" here in the Hamlet, so please support the merchants who in turn support events in the community.
Every time you purchase anything at our shops you can enter to win  a huge gift basket that is on display at Going Coastal.

Going coastal is still going every Thursday - Sunday from 11-5pm right up until Christmas Eve.

Paula at Amicus Gallery just threw open the doors of her kiln this morning and out popped a bunch of puffins - Amicus' 2016 ornament. There is also a fresh batch of seasonal red crockery just waiting for a turkey leg to adorn it.
