Spring Pop-Up: Thank you!

After a late night setting up on Friday, we opened the doors to Wool & Co for our exclusive Spring Pop-Up yesterday morning at 10am. Laura gave us free reign to create our own window display in her Union Street store as well as letting us pretty much take over her entire shop with our biscuity delights!

The shop itself was previously an establishment called Gow’s (see the original ironwork under the main window) which lived its previous life as a rather cave-like fishing shop. The transformation that Laura has bestowed upon the building is amazing- and we were delighted to have the chance to be part of the new space for the day.

We previewed the newest addition to our collection in store yesterday: a whole trio of sweet Fondant Fancy cushions! We had a great response to these on our facebook page- so thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on or share our photograph. We’re hoping to shoot the official photographs of these next week (once they clouds clear and we have a bit of daylight to work with again!) but in the mean time, we’ve added our new Fondant Fancy cushions to our online store, priced at £29.50 each.

Another newbie came along in the form of our re-invented Jam Ring brooch- which now features a bejewelled strawberry centre. These are also now available in our online store for only £6 each.

It was lovely to be out of the studio for the day, in a brand new space, meeting lots of lovely people!

We had a MASSIVE selection of biscuits to treat our customers too- as well as a whole packet of Party Rings that we managed to demolish within about 15 minutes. Before then though, we did manage to take some pretty delightful photos- colour-matching our biscuits to Wool & Co’s maching-knit yarns!

Wool & Co even got on the Biscuit Bandwagon and crocheted up a big pile of these cute little woolly treats.

The day absolutely flew in- and I almost can’t believe that we’re not going to be spending all of our days in Laura’s lovely store from now on! We’re heading back to pack up this evening, before heading back to the studio. Wool & Co is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10am, where you can find Laura (and her wee pooch Maisie) amongst a rainbow of pretty yarns.

Thank you to everyone who popped in to chat, to add a wee piece to their collection or to have a biscuit with us!
