We love our wee shop and have spend a lot of time continually renovating it and designing features and displays in the beautiful Victorian windows.
Before we took it over it was an accountants, and before that - decades ago it was a dressmakers and milliners. Making beautiful clothes and hats from scratch. Our haberdashery unit is a nod to those talented women who ran these shops before us. It's lovely to be new women makers in this space - carrying on their legacy.

If anyone has any other information about the history of our wee shop, do let us know.
