The Thrifty Thistle Team
The business started in March 2012 and has developed in so many ways from our humble beginnings. We are constantly changing and adding to it, every year, making it a wonderful visit to enjoy a unique shopping experience.
The shop is full of hand crafted homewares and gifts all handmade by over 80 crafters who display and sell their beautiful items from their own individual rented spaces, if you'd be interested in selling your own items within our shop, just ask here.
We run fantastic, fun and lively classes for people to learn great new skills and to meet and make new friends - click here for details.
The day to day running of the shop has a lively, helpful and enthusiastic team of staff, serving customers and helping crafters manage their spaces.
On site, we have a range of bespoke hand painted furniture on sale and displayed in our furniture showroom. If you don't find a piece your looking for, then we can be commissioned to do customers own pieces of furniture, carried out on demand. Please enquire for a free quote here.
We love selling handmade craft and furniture, every item in the shop is individual and unique, it's a pleasure to support such clever, talented people.
So far it's done really well and there are new ideas on the horizon, so look out for changes within the shop, here on our website and our Facebook page.
