If you’ve never visited Hearts for Homes in Ramsbottom then you’re missing out on a real gem of the town. Not only can you take away a little Ramsbottom emblazoned souvenir but you can also buy a variety of unique one of a kind crafted items made by very talented locals such as Lynne the Mudlark and artist Stuart Barkley who I interviewed on the podcast back in episode 73.
Originally starting out as a place for Kerry to sell her upcycling works, Hearts for Homes has been in business since May 2016 where Kerry had an opening day with bubbles and cake.
This is the first shop that Kerry has ever owned, previously working as a nurse and before that an accountant, although Kerry now pays for someone else to do her books.
Kerry is a self proclaimed “chatterbox” so don’t think you can just nip in for one or two things, you’ll be there for a lovely catch-up too and Kerry is always on hand to provide a lovely warm welcome.

One thing that has changed since the shop opened is that people are more often than not coming to Kerry with their crafts and stock as opposed to Kerry having to go source items although she still does enjoy sourcing items that she’d like to have herself.
If you plan on visiting Ramsbottom Hearts for Homes needs to be on your list to visit, and once you’ve been there you can nip for a coffee and some cake (or even cheese) in The Mouse Trap and say Hi to Mellissa Brown or even nip down to The Brewery for a pint or two.
