Treasure Trove at the Royal Highland Show

Last week Highland Hiddle went offline for the very first time at the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh. We took a selection of work from 15 makers to showcase and our stand was a an eclectic mix of delights from original art, clothing and accessories, and homeware to jewellery, toiletries, candles and decorations.

We were delighted to be met with an enthusiastic reaction from the public who absolutely loved all that we had on show, indeed many called our stand a "treasure trove" of delights. What's more, there was much interest in the overall concept of one ecommerce site showcasing the work of artists and crafters from across the Scottish Highlands and Islands, who many admitted are often difficult to find individually.

While people bought a wide range of products, there were a few items that proved particularly popular at the show: Greg Dobson's hand-cut and welded swallows and butterflies 'flew' off the shelves; Ingrid sold out of her bunnies who hopped off happily to their new homes (more will be added to the website as soon as she can make them!); Kevin O'Neill's hand-painted brooches and original paintings proved a hit, and Whinnyfold Knitwear's Morven jumpers and cardigans sold well.

Thank you to all those who popped by the stand at the show it was a pleasure to meet you and we hope you continue to browse and buy the many hidden treasures that can be found on the website.
