Aurora Jewellery from Orkney

We have just had a delivery of beautiful Aurora Jewellery from Orkney.

Aurora use traditional methods and tools to create unique pieces, each of which combines a freshness of design with quality craftsmanship, overseen by master craftsman Steven Cooper.  Although made in the traditional way the jewellery designs are really contemporary.  Many of the sterling silver pieces are finished with 9ct gold detailing which make the pieces feel really fresh.

Traditional methods and tools are used to create unique pieces of jewellery. Each marries fresh design with quality craftsmanship, which cannot be replicated by modern machine manufacturing techniques.

Each piece of Aurora jewellery has an appeal beyond the conventional markets forging a new link between traditional skill and innovative design.

We are delighted to be stocking the Elska, Glide and Forget-me-not collections.

Spring is nearly here

Spring its nearly here

Spring is nearly here and keep asking where did January go?  It has flown by and like many of us I am much happier that we are heading into February – mostly because that is when all the new Spring/Summer 2019 ranges are starting to arrive in the shop.  I often get a surprise when they arrive as they were ordered ages and ages ago.  It is always a pleasant surprise though, like today when I unpacked all the new Busy B stationery.  I had forgotten how lovely the new spring summer colours and textures were.  We have notebooks, address books and  beautiful stylus pens.  Don’t tell anyone but we also have password reminder books  (we are NOT recommending you write passwords down!! – but they are handy) – as ever with a piece of Busy B stationery there is always a couple of many wee pockets or stickers that are oh so useful and add value if you are giving the items as a gift.

We also have some lovely new Baby keepsake boxes for boys or girls and a beautiful soft grey Grandparents keepsake book which make a great gift for new grandparents.

Anyway pop in soon to see all the lovely new Spring/Summer 2019 stationery gifts from Busy B.

Collier Campbell Gifts

Collier Campbell Gifts now in stock

We are delighted to be stocking some beautiful new Collier Campbell gifts.

Collier Campbell was founded in the 1960s by sisters Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell. French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent used designs by Collier Campbell as the inspiration for his first ever ready-to-wear collection in 1971.  Collier Campbell then went on to collaborate with many of the world’s top designers, retailers and manufacturers including Liberty, Habitat, Jaeger and Conran. The designs have won many awards and can be found in several museum collections featuring the best of modern design including the V&A Museum, London.

Collier Campbell designs are all hand painted and this gives them a fluidity and freshness that computer generated designs just can’t match. As well creating new designs for collections and products they have a wonderful design library that they use for inspiration by updating designs and colours.

Collier Campbell are passionate about colour and pattern and want their fabulous designs available on great quality products for everyone to enjoy. We have a range of beautiful scarves and toilet bags from Quintessential and a range of reed diffusers and candles hand made in Cumbria by Wax Lyrical.

One of my favourite scarves is the Florista Design a fine pure wool scarf with a vibrant mix of flowers and stripes in a rainbow of gorgeous colours.  With a lightly fringed hem and generous length and width, it feels beautifully soft to wear as a scarf or a wrap and will add a pop of colour to any outfit. The scarfs come in a tissue-lined dove grey gift box, stamped with the iconic Bird on a Branch logo to make the most beautiful Christmas, birthday or anniversary present.

The range of home fragrance products include diffusers, glass filled candles and candle tins.  Fragrances are Rose and Oud, Vanilla and Amber, Pomegranate and Cedarwood and Jasmine and Sandalwood.  The fantastic fragrances of the candles are matched with designs that somehow capture the right mix of contemporary and vintage design.

Some people have started shopping for Christmas –  if you haven’t, why not pop into the shop to see the new collection –  you might be inspired!
