Nina's Apartment is going on an Kirkton of Rayne!

Nina's Apartment will soon be popping up with a dedicated vintage design corner in the old church hall of Kirkton of Rayne near Inverurie, which is being transformed into a luxury Christmas retail destination during November and December. 

The Kirkton of Rayne Christmas Shop, organised by local enterpreneur Rebecca Jamieson, will be selling a large selection of handcrafted Christmas decorations, stocking fillers, interior accessories and some carefully chosen gifts displayed on an eclectic collection of new and vintage furniture which will also be for sale. It'll also be showing off Rebecca's passion for interior design, wreath making and all things Christmas!

In addition the pop-up shop will be stocking some special pieces by Scottish artists including Jewellery by Hamespun and linocut prints by Heather Mathieson.

A cozy and welcoming café corner will add the finishing touch to this unique retail destination, serving hot drinks and delicious home bakes from Vanilla Chocolate boutique caterers. 

A fresh Christmas wreath-making workshop will be held on Friday the 4th of December.

The Kirkton of Rayne Christmas Shop will be open from 11am -4pm Thursday to Sunday, starting from Saturday the 31st of October. Admission is free and there is ample parking.

For more information and the latest news on special events and workshops please visit the Kirkton of Rayne Christmas Shop facebook page.

Mid-century modern Danish chairs get a makeover

I have been busy in the studio recently, giving two chairs a complete makeover with some fresh seating and upholstery. The wooden frames are both sturdy and solid but of course show some signs of wear, to be expected for their age. The fabric and foam cushions are brand new.

Both chairs can be viewed and tried out in the shop.

1960s teak wood rocking chair reupholstered in a grey polka dot woolen fabric £350.00
Dimensions: 70cm wide x 82cm tall x 85cm deep.

1960s oak armchair, reupholstered in a Japanese style floral cotton. £140.00
