Brit Boutique loves to support independent boutiques and British craftsmanship.
In this blog post I am going to focus on my favourite shops that I have found on my travels around the North of England and The Scottish Borders.
The Mole House, Kelso, Roxburghshire sells a variety of products from candles to pottery from Poland and jewellery by Orkney based jewellery designer Sheila Fleet. On my first visit to The Mole House I purchased a star mug, two candle tapers and a Sheila Fleet Rowan Tree necklace. The owner of The Mole House was very welcoming and informative about the ranges she sells in particular the Sheila Fleet jewellery range.
Just Plum, Kelso, Roxburghshire is more of a lifestyle shop which sells soaps, jewellery, scarves and some things for the home. They sell soaps by British companies The Highland Soap Co and Olive Tree, both of which smell wonderful. They also sell Branche d'Olive soaps and Heyland and Whittle. They sell pashminas which are handmade in Nepal and candles by Isle of Skye candle company which are made from natural soya wax.
Sorella, Hexham, Northumberland Moira and Liz are lovely and source their products from around the world. They sell things for the home, jewellery, bags, scarves, candles and bath products. The ranges are so varied that you will be sure to come out with something. The bath products they sell are Abahna and they stock the fragrances and candles too. They sell reed diffusers from Italy, pottery from Portugal and jewellery by Kazuri.
