Nicky from Artisan & Eco, Wool Market (soon to relocate)The Eco Shed at Doncaster market proves we’re not philistines when it comes to wanting to live a more eco-friendly life. Nicky launched the business at the Wool Market earlier in the year and now stocks everything from artisan crafts to eco essentials like reusable cups and bottles. We recommend the package free salt rock deodorants, they contain no harmful chemicals or wasteful packaging plus they are mega cheap and last ages.
