Agree, yes, it's the spaciousness that makes it easy to navigate without feeling like a bull in a china shop! Love this place.

Wow, what a place! There are similar places in Edinburgh curating handmade items, but it's the spacious shop and the wonderful choice that sets this one apart. I see items from some of my favourite online Etsy sellers here, and am never short of things I want to buy! The only downside is the pricing - understandable considering the running costs of the shop and the handmade nature of the products, but I am seldom able to spend over £3 on a greetings card.
Staff usually very friendly, although on my most recent visit the lady behind the counter was staring at the computer when I came in and then staring into the middle distance as I left, uninterested in saying hello or goodbye.
Beautiful spacious shop where you can snap up a craft/collectable/graphic print/card/jewellery or even have a picture or print framed. I loved the vintage tea cups re-cycled as candles, and the recycled furniture, for example, simple kitchen chairs painted with delicate patterns. Many of the suppliers stocked are from the local area, and scotland-wide, though not all, and the shop has a very fresh feel to it which I love. Long live independent businesses like this!
This new little lovely addition to Broughton Street brands itself as a picture framer, gifts and homewares shop and that pretty much sums it up really… A perfect addition to Broughton Street it has a really cool mismatched feel and has the most beautiful framed artwork. As well as gorgeous little gifty things and lovely toiletries… They also sell little pieces of furniture, when I say little pieces I mean a strategically placed armchair here and a vintage looking kitchen chair there…
They also have the most divine shot glasses.. I particularly liked the tiny 1960’s ones ooh and the small range of jewellery they have is really funky I particularly LOVED the feather earrings – very 1970’s on trend at the moment too and would make for a lovely Christmas present. A small selection of cards but they are a little different and cater to all occasions. All the stock is really well spaced and not cluttered the way these shops usually are where you are scared to move for fear of smashing something off a bench with your handbag… I’ll definitely be back I am curious no more.
