Bumble Dust Mother’s Day

Bumble Dust, our Museum shop, uses a good range of local and sustainable suppliers, including hand-made products, which aims to reflect the spirit of Trowbridge. This spring our wonderful volunteers have produced some beautiful hand-made items using cloth made at the Museum when it was a weaving mill.  If you’re visiting the Museum before Mother’s Day why not call by at the shop whilst you’re here and find a gift for that special someone.
