We’ve been up and running now for a month (how time flies!) and all the time we’re increasing our range of gifts.We are stocking various candles and diffusers from the Isle of Skye Candle Company and also a variety of Skye Meadowsweet’s products including soap, handcream, shampoo and midge lotion.
Under the heading of ‘things to wear’ we have some cute little aprons for children by Sue Colbourne (£7), colourful handwarmers and headbands by our own Mairi (10 – £20), beautiful brooches by Fighe (£12 and £15), and crochet shawls by Ingrid (£49.95-£75). In fact, one of the ranges we stock is ‘Wearable Art’ – handpainted originals made into brooches by Skye-based artist Marion Boddy Evans (£35). For real luxury – that special gift – we are lucky to have from established artist, Emma Noble, scarves, men’s ties, and pocket squares in silkscreen-printed silk. Truly beautiful unique pieces!
We also have beautifully handcrafted household objects. In addition to Mairi’s handknitted woollen rugs, Jenny Hendry’s hot water bottles with crochet covers (£25) have proved popular at this time of year. We have various cushions – Jean Stewart’s amazing chenille cushions (£22.50) and Frances Pearce’s colourful batik cushions (£33 and £35) . A great gift for an artist would be Emma Siedle-Collins’ sketchbook with a stitched textile cover (£30). And Jenny Hey’s felt iPad cover (£50) is a potential gift for all ages.
We’re aiming to have a range of quality gifts to suit all pockets. And of course we have lots of cards. In fact, everything you need for that special gift. Please drop in for a look and a chat.
