Remade Home returns

Christmas starts in earnest at ReMade this Sunday when our Advent Sunday door will open for a little mince-pie-munching, mulled-punch-swigging, present-finding doo.

And you’re invited!
Beautiful gifts are already available in the shop – remade by hand, vintage and fairtrade, something different, a little quirky and the best prices.

When you buy handmade at ReMade, two thirds of what you pay goes to a local maker.

I’m very excited … Joanna Reid from Blackbird Alley is designing ReMade’s Christmas window. Work starts on Tuesday with a splash of retro paint. Keep watching.

And here’s a sneak peak of something special arriving this week. A classic kitchen dresser from the 1950s, beautifully upcycled by Fiona Robertson at Just Braw.

For photos and the latest news from ReMade, please visit our Facebook. Or come on down.

Come by bus! From Edinburgh, Lothian Buses’ 26 and 44 services (not Eastfield) pass ReMade’s door every 10-15 minutes. Sundays too. Get off at the Brunton Hall and walk back just 50 yards.

People still talk to me about our Remade Home show back in June, I’m delighted that so many of you have such great memories. I loved it too. So next year, ReMade Home returns!

Meantime … the Remade shop is filled with interesting and unusual furnishings for an eco chic home. From upcycled Ercol dining chairs by Just Braw to mono tweed cushions and quilts by Magghi McLean of Puffin Patchworks to a classic Midwinter vintage tea set. By the way, I’m always looking for new remade home products. If you’re a designer and maker, do get in touch.

  • Edd Wellesley-Davies has taken over the much of the gallery space at ReMade once more with his fabulous Winter 2011 collection of film inspired posters. A limited edition giclee print (35x50cm) is £35 (also smaller prints £15). Check out the collection on Edd’s Facebook.
  • With the Christmas party season just around the corner, and most of us counting the pennies, a brand new party frock might not be an option this year. The Sewing Room at ReMade is already helping customers to create a new look with party clothes already in their wardrobe. With a few simple alterations – such as reshaping, hemline shortening or replacing buttons – your much-loved LBD can be given a new lease of life, and a better or more modern fit. And it’s both frugal and green. So pop in to see Laura Fleming, Tuesday to Friday 10am to 4pm. Don’t forget to bring your party shoes too!
  • If you were captivated by Heather Potten’s exhibition of felting scarves earlier this year, and would like to have a go yourself, she’s running a Nuno felt scarf workshop on 26 November. There’s more information on her website.
  • Musselburgh is taking first steps towards sustainability, and it feels like the town is determined to be recognised as a place where people want to visit, and aspire to live. One initiative is the Transition group, and in the next six months, they’ll be recruiting local people who are interesting in locally grown food. Follow the group’s progress on Facebook (you don’t have to be signed up) and do join in. Or ask me about the latest news when you visit the shop.
