I personally have always loved them from being very little; their vibrant colours & cheeky faces. Ok yes we need a Zippy & Zappy mold creating now…Another project on the horizon…I think!!
Does anyone remembers the Gnome House (as I used to call it) in Goose Green in Altrincham ?
There used to be a house tucked in the corner with a garden completely full of them! Sadly after many many years of admiration from shoppers & myself growing up over night they had mysteriously vanished! Spread across the local papers with shock reactions at how anyone would possible steal so many overnight.
Nowadays there are Designers & Artists out there creating quirky, state of the art gnomes!
We’re just loving both the traditional & even more quirky! Which do you prefer?
