A self-styled “little shop of treasures” has started selling products created by a group of school students.

Sophie’s Attic in High Street, Weldon, was launched in June by artists Sue Still and Helen Clarke, who wanted to create an outlet where creative people could sell their products.

They were so impressed with products made by students from Corby Business Academy’s Young Enterprise company Happy Hands UK that they are now stocking a selection of their products, including cake stands, aprons, chalk boards, photo frames, bracelets and a range of pin cushions and candles.
