As well as stocking local free range and organic eggs, for Easter we stocked dairy and gluten free eggs and chocolates to support those on special diets. Eggs symbolise new life.
Hand painted eggs based on folk art designs from Eastern Europe were hung from budding branches on ribbon. The colours used are symbolic – yellow for happiness in youth, green for freshness and fertility, blue for health and vitality. The different patterns represent life, death, eternity, purification and the bond between life and death.
