Arts, crafts and such
  • pullington's is a great place to test state of the art pens on post its for hours and then not buy anything because pencils cost £9 each
  • There is the ashgate gallery and Farnham Maltings, Also there is a gallery at the top of the Lion and Lamb. When you get there, turn round and look at the statue. Weird?. There is also a Pottery in nearby Village Wrecclesham
  • arty gallery thing just off Downing Street at the bottom nr the toy shop - obviously farnham = v.arty as there is the college - was cheeky fish but that shut down they used to do crafty stuff - bizarrely is my little world which sells dolls house furniture - elphicks sells crafty stuff and there is great fabric shop in lion and lamb if u make your own clothes like the erm..talented moi. maltings is always doing arty stuff too
  • Cheeky Fish in East Street (in what was the Royal Deer pub, opposite Barclays) is great for anything kitsch. Lots of girly retro pin-up art products, fairy lights, angel wings, fluffy cushions and gifts. It may be pink but its not just for girls. 10% student discount!
  • the maltings has a pretty cool craft fair every so often. there's this hop in downing street where you can paint mugs and stuff, it looks a bit try hard but it's actually well good fun

  • Theres the Art College, which has a free gallery, oooh.
  • The New Ashgate Gallery is situated at the bottom of Downing Street. As for other arty / crafty shops I can only reccommend Presenly Yours in Downing Street - they have loads of unusual stuff from around the world. Remarkable Impressions is also a great place to shop - very friendly and lots of unusual gifts.
  • This town is Twee incarnate, plenty of galleries and shops, and the ubiquitous Maltings has exhibitions and markets.
  • Matltings Market, first Saturday each month. Basically one huge antiques fair.
