Today marks the beginning of the September Weekend holiday in Glasgow – children get both Friday and Monday off school and most adults will have at least Monday off. We thought we’d bring together the launch of a number of new ranges in the shop to coincide with the holiday. We often launch summer ranges at Easter, so why not do the same with our Autumn/Winter ones now, we thought.
We have six artists and crafters launching new ranges in our shop today. The first of these is The Melt Pool. We’ve previously stocked their popular votive candles, but we now also have their large tinned candles in 6 wonderful scents. This includes a brand new scent (we’re one of the first shops to stock it): Lime with Basil & Orange. As always, The Melt Pool’s candles are hand poured and made locally with quality soy wax, scented with pure essential oils. The large tins have a burn time of around 35 hours and are priced at £7.50 each.
Laura Wilson Designs has a new style of mini cups launching instore today. They’re just £5 each and perfect for espressos. We also have a number of her other ceramic lines which are new to us, even if she’s been making them for a while, including her jars and two handled bowls. Handmade button fans will also find her dish replenished with buttons featuring her brilliant artwork.
Susie Rodgers Millinery is launching a new range of needle cases with us today. They complement her fairy toadstool pincushions perfectly and feature a tiny fairy charm hovering above the toadstool and are £6 each.
In addition, we have a new display hat from Susie, a cloche hat that will be popular with Downton fans, featuring a Harris tweed flower, priced £40.
We have three card ranges also being launched instore today. The first of these is from Poppy & Mimi. We hope these will be just as popular as her brooches and frames (the cards also feature upcycled maps, music and children’s book illustrations on wood). There are almost 100 cards in her initial delivery, each one unique, priced £3.50 each.
Chris Masson Creates is also launching a new card range in our shop today, featuring his popular pyrography. These are also £3.50 each.
Finally, we have some beautiful new Autumn photocards from Halcyon Martin (Works of HIS Hands), priced £2.15 each.
