fun makes good

Really lovely leather petal brooches, bow brooches and keyrings from the very talented Glasgow based designer Eleanor Young (Fun Makes Good) now in the shop! Eleanor does some amazing upholstery and reworked furniture, which is well worth checking out if you haven't seen it before, and we'll soon be getting one of her fabulous Pi.Pouffes which I'm really rather excited about.
prices from £10-£14


Weekends can be very short when you work in a shop. A few recent ones....

Jazz night at Blair Drummond Safari Park. Music, picnic, penguins, dancing, dodgems, & the big blue wavy slide thing. Very exciting! Finishing off with high-kicking to New York, New York.

Atholl Highlanders Ball and Atholl Gathering (the following day) in Blair Atholl. All the usual events (dancing, tossing the caber, tug-of-war etc) with a bit of wrestling and vintage Skoda pulling thrown in. Ken (my man) can just be seen behind the guy with the big drum (and up top 3rd from right in the 'Highlanders' race) -whilst I retreat up the hill to feed my hangover chips and curry sauce.

Each mounted on their own polka dot card, and a bargain at just £6 each.
