My name is Su and I run a small home-based business called Home Grown Gnomes, based in the Cambridgeshire.
In 2011, while living in Sweden I won a small gnome decoration. I found out he was called a tomte, a little gnome-like man from Nordic folklore. A tomte lives on farms, in one of the barns, and comes out at night to help take care of the family and animals. They are very helpful if treated well but can be mischievous if you offend them.
I loved the tomte tradition and soon had several more to decorate the house at Christmas. Eventually I started making my own and Home Grown Gnomes was born.
Each distinctive gnome is made by hand and no two are ever the same. Gnomes are for life, not just for Christmas, so check back throughout the year for new designs.
Homegrown Gnomes are for decorative purposes only. They are not intended to be used as toys. Please keep out of the reach of young children and pets due to small parts which could pose a choking hazard.
