Shop Scotland

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve joined the ranks of Shop Scotland!

Shop Scotland’s concept is simple: We give small creative ecommerce businesses a platform to shout from, and we help people around the world discover Scottish talent in abundance.¬†With an easy to navigate site, category specific sections and features, there is always a wealth of fresh and exciting businesses to uncover.

After sadly seeing the demise of many local independent shops and the rise of the tartan tat brigade, Shop Scotland was born to help raise awareness about real Scottish products. You might find tartan on this site but you definitely won’t find tat.

Susan from Shop Scotland is full of exciting links on Twitter and Facebook to help you discover other Scottish businesses and I’ve spoken to nothing but lovely folk since joining.

It also came in quite handy when my poor website had a php-meltdown and had to be rescued by the Lovely Young Man and I could re-direct website traffic to something lovely and professional looking with links to all the relevant places.

So as a token of my gratitude, I’ve been browsing through other Shop Scotland-er’s pages and here are a few gems:

Strumpet Cocktail Hats on Shop Scotland

Strumpet Cocktail Hats

You know by now how much I love an eye veil, and it’s taking all my will power to leave my holiday money alone and not buy a dozen killing hats!

Some lovely glass (I’m feeling an urge for a martini all of a sudden).

…and more hats because, well why wouldn’t you?

Shopping Small

I know I’m a little late to the party, but I’ve just got into eBay in a big way.

I’ve started an (unfashionable) brass trivet collection and I’m trying to pick up as many other bits and pieces that we need for the kitchen there as I can.

trivets

My brass polishing skills need a little (ahem) brushing up.

It’s not that my charity shop days are over, but if you have something specific in mind it can take years off the search!

Plus, I’m getting (even) more militant in my Shopping Small and even if I’m not able to get everything second hand at least I’m more likely to support a person than a corporation (eBay and PayPal excepted, of course).

butter dish

I definitely measured the old butter dish (in which the butter fits perfectly) before I bought this one, and no one was more surprised than I when this happened. But neither the Deco butter dish or the locally made¬†butter are giving ground, so we’ll have to work around it.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m on the hunt for a spoon rest…
