Handmade Soaps and Bath Products

soaps
Someone once said 'Soap is to the body what laughter is to the soul', and we aim to give your body something to smile about, with a selecttion of soaps and bath products from a number of different makers.


Bath Bubble and Beyond

A range of luxurious soaps, made with natural products and essential oils, some made to look like a mouthwatering slice of gateau! We normally have a regular range of 6 slab soaps, with additional fragrances to suit the season.  Add a little zest to your bathtime with our  selection packs of Bath Marbles.

 
Bomb Cosmetics
A further great range of handmade soaps and bath products, including some really great  Bath Blasters, which have established themselves as real favourites with our regular customers. Again, these products are made from natural ingredients, designed to nourish the skin.

Since 2016, we have stocked a small range of high quality skincare products from Scottish company Siabann. We believe we are the only stockists for these lovely products in Dumfries and Galloway. The range includes gift sets for men from the Bearr Mann range.


Siabann Skincare Products

Scaur Glen Soaps

Unfortunately, due to increased costs, we are no longer stocking these lovely soaps. Do ask and we can put you in contact with the maker for information about the various gift fairs where she sells direct to the public.



Ethically-traded Giftware

Something Different

We are delighted to be stocking a range of lovely mirrors, photo frames, windchimes, ceramics and other handmade gift items imported from various developing countries by  Welsh-based Something Different. Products include some stunning glass mosaic items from Bali, beautiful wooden sculptures, and ceramics. The unusual designs and value-for-money prices have proved a great hit with our regular customers, and we will continue to add further products over the passing months.
An added bonus to these lovely products is that both companies operate an ethical trading policy which ensures that the producers receive a fair price for their goods.



Namaste

New for 2018!

Yorkshire based company, Namaste, pride themselves on supplying fairly traded products, sustainably produced by artisans in developing countries, often using recycled materials. We believe their unusual and colourful products will complement our existing ranges and prove popular with our customers. 

"Namaste is still a relatively small business with a strong ethical policy at its core. We are not perfect but we believe our policies are consistent and transparent. We aim to buy from small scale producers who use largely natural materials and traditional techniques to produce beautiful and interesting articles. All Namaste products are fairly traded. We believe that the best way to reduce poverty is through trade."



Ancient Wisdom
Another ethically based company, supplying unusual items produced by small enterprises in developing countries.


Hill Interiors

Some great quality items supplied by North Yorkshire distributors, including candle sconces, animal sculptures and small furniture items.


Nemesis Now

Specialising in fantasy-inspired figures, their range of Wine Guzzlers (unusual sculpted bottle holders) as proved a big winner since we discovered them last Autumn.


Primus

We came across some stunning handcrafted metal bird and animal sculptures from this West Midland's based firm at last year's Harrogate Gift Fair, and just had to add them to our range of products. We are expecting our first delivery in time for the re-opening of our Burn Street shop. We think you'll be as stunned as we were!



Fused Glass Figures from D&J Glassware

Another discovery from the Harrogate Gift Fair, these stunning glass figures look lovely with a candle behind them, or placed in a window, and are handmade by a family company in Norfolk. We have a good selection of animals from cats to highland cattle, all very reasonably priced in the region of 20-25.




Jewelery from Byzantium Collection


We used to carry a small selection of delightful costume jewelery, sourced through one of our wholesalers, which was always popular, but have been unable to find them again until very recently. We are delighted to have secured a delivery of a wide range of stunning necklaces, ear rings and bracelets (many made from real silver) - great presents for the lady in your life at Christmas, birthday, or whenever you want to simply say 'I love you'!


kids
We have been stocking a range of products from Joe Davies Giftware, but will be reducing our reliance on them as many items are now available from other local shops.



Scented Sachets from Heart of the Country

For those of you who are wary of naked flames or electric plug-ins, this great range of scented sachets are the ideal solution for ensuring your home always smells fresh and inviting. 100% environmentally friendly, with a variety of scents lasting up to 3 months, just leave a sachet strategically placed to perfume your home - or for a stronger scent, place on a radiator. 






We no longer stock Yankee Candles as the contract has been transferred to McKenzies Hardware. However, with Janet's kind collaboration, we are happy to include Candles in any gift hampers
