Fun & games at The Toy Barn

When The Toy Barn asked for our help we were thrilled to be part of another local project! The independent toy shop, established in 2003 on the outskirts of Sherborne, is a place most of us know and love.

In 2017, Black Shed flower farm came to join the community, making it a blooming lovely place to visit. The flower farm supplies the very best seasonal and vibrant flowers grown locally on the 500-acre Blackmarsh farm. Between the Hunts and their staff, the perfect community and space for a family day out has been created.

The Hunts are known locally for their creativity and ability to think outside the (toy) box! After a tough few years of foot and mouth disease on the farm The Toy Barn was an idea they came up with and now, more than a decade on, their plans continue to expand. Within the wonders of the farm visitors will soon be able to enjoy the new boot friendly cafe, pick beautiful Black Shed flowers and choose from a selection of handcrafted toys.

To make way for their exciting year ahead, Team Lolly were called upon to help promote their autumn sale. They were keen for us to get started quickly in anticipation for Christmas, so we got straight to work designing a newsletter and a series of Facebook adverts to get the word out. With new photography, we created tailored adverts to inform people of the sale and of The Toy Barn’s fabulous newsletter.

With a new cafe to enjoy, plentiful flowers to pick and independent toys to buy, visit The Toy Barn for a perfect family day out. For quality Christmas gifts take a look at the sale online here.
