The Emporium opened in the former Flour Mill at the Gosport marina on Sunday.

The business is the brainchild of a small group of artists and crafts people, led by Julie D’Arcy.

She said: ‘We contain an eclectic range of beautiful and unusual gifts and artworks as well quirky crafted items, from around 20 local creatives.’
