Burnby Handmade Gifts

Burnby Handmade Gifts – Now Open


Our Gift Shop is situated within the Visitor Centre and is open between 10 am and 4.30 pm (10 am to 3.30 pm in the Winter season).

Trading as “Burnby Handmade Gifts” we sell a wide variety of specially created handmade pictures, glassware and craft items on behalf of their makers.


Following the re-opening of our Gift Shop as Burnby Handmade Gifts, here is a message from Deborah, who runs Just Makers, giving the background to her plans here at Burnby Hall Gardens.



I am so happy to be working with the Gardens and have recently set up the shop, Burnby Handmade Gifts, with a whole array of gorgeous things. I have my own shop, Just Makers, in Ripley Castle courtyard and coordinate events for the Bath House at the bottom of the gardens at RHS Harlow Carr. I work with over 200 makers and artists, mostly from Yorkshire.

At the shop in Burnby Hall Gardens, I’ve displayed the work of 27 makers, all from God’s own county! Some crafters work close to the Gardens, some from York, Laura is from Fangfoss and Toni lives in Pocklington. We do love local!

There is a wide range of crafts from printing to textiles to pottery and glass. I will continue to bring other work across and keep the shop looking interesting and fresh. I do hope you appreciate that there is something special about handmade goods … they just feel different. Nothing supplied by Just Makers for the shop is mass produced and all the makers are running small businesses out of their shed, spare room or at the kitchen table.  By supporting Burnby Handmade Gifts you are indirectly supporting all these other small enterprises and certainly, at this current time, that will be very much appreciated.

Looking forward, I’m hoping to give you the opportunity to meet some makers, see what they do and have the chance to ask them questions. In the meantime, it would be wonderful if you could pop in and support us. I hope to meet lots of you when I’m stocking up.





Throughout the summer months, we also have a wide selection of Perennials, Alpines and Shrubs for sale at very reasonable prices.
