About Us

This website is owned and run by Nicola Holbrooke of NLH Designs Ltd, trading as Clever Gretel. You can contact us at 15 Kelfield Gardens, London, W10 6NA, info@clevergretel.co.uk, 07971685219. All content is created by Clever Gretel and protected. 



Our products are handmade and have many little unique components. For this reason, the shape, colour and contents of the products may change slightly at times. Specifically, KalenderHaus Klassic and KalenderHaus II will have a variety of decorations inside the advent envelopes from year to year to ensure that repeat orders have new products every Christmas. Some decorations will be new and some will be repeated but always in a different order to the year before. In the biscuit kits, sugar decorations and non edible decorations will vary depending on season and availability of contents and therefore may differ from photography on the website. Headbands, Box Scene and Bottle Scenes will have characters and landscape that will vary in colour and size.
