ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT®
Turn something old into something new.
All you need is time, patience and world-renowned Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®.
No priming or sanding. Just open the tin,
dip your brush and watch the magic happen.
It couldn't be easier.
Annie's always been part of the shop. The counter was my first piece of painted furniture and it was so much admired. I just had to become a stockist.
Create your very own Chalk Paint® pieces.

MEET THE BUSY BEE,
Owning my own boutique has been a dream since I was a 16-year-old girl.
Complete with permed hair and double braces on my teeth, I worked in Opus One, a beautiful Edinburgh treasure trove selling to wonderfully stylish ladies.
Fast forward to 2017.
After being Jenners’ youngest assistant buyer to date, travelling the world buying from the biggest fashion labels, being headhunted by a major Australian homeware brand and launching Molton Brown’s flagship Edinburgh store, my dream came true.
Thank you, as always, for taking the time to pop into my shop for a wee escape from the hamster wheel of life.
