Edinburgh Pop-up Shop


Ziggy Sawdust + Paper Aeroplane: First Birthday Pop-up Shop! from Fiona Purves on Vimeo.

I am so very inspired by these two lovely ladies. Fiona (aka Paper Airplanes) makes beautiful, handmade stationery and Amy (Ziggy Sawdust) rehabs furniture into wonderful retro pieces. And these two creative entrepeneurs happen to have a pop-up shop this weekend in Edinburgh: May 25-29 at Whitespace, 11 Gayfield Square.

I know a lot of you guys aren’t Edinburgh-based, but Cath and I love highlighting independent creatives who are charting their own course and making beautiful things. I wish you guys could join me this weekend. Local Edinburgh readers, let me know if you’re going!


Dear Cath,

I know you really, really want to go to this. Where is our windfall of money when you need it? I’ll take lots of pics and send them your way and buy some bits and bobs to send back to you — or give you when I see you in August.

So glad we got to skype today — it’s not enough, but I guess I should be grateful that we don’t just have to rely on payphones and calling cards (remember good ole Spain or our first trip to Italy?).

Hope that you have a wonderful week! Miss you ooooodles as always. I’ve now come to accept the fact that being apart won’t get easier. Boo to infinity.

  1. Words cannot explain how much I want to go to this pop-up with you! I can’t wait to hear all about it. Amy and Fiona are so creative! Hopefully they’ll be doing another pop up shop at some point in the future when I come to visit you!

    Miss you so much! Can’t wait until our hangout on Saturday!

    xoxo, Cath

  2. Thank you so much Lar + Cath! It means a lot to be showcased on your beautiful blog!

    Lar- looking forward to meeting you this evening and Cath- wish you could make it too! Fingers crossed this will lead to more opportunities to ‘pop-up’ and you can catch us next time 🙂
