Covid 19, Opening to Public

Retail outlets can open subject to restrictions. Initially, we will open  Saturdays  but please check this blog or Instagram/Facebook before travelling. We can only allow 3 customers or 1 family group at a time for social distancing, we have tape markings and a one way route. We have sanitiser at the door, including an alchol free one as we know some cause allergies.We may open at other times, a lot of businesses are operating on a restricted basis just now, if the lights are on and open sign in window, pop in. We will be opening the downstairs galleries subject to social distancing once a themed exhibition by Sheila is completed and hung. We may be able to offer timed private views one evening once all hanging is done, please follow the blogs.

We expect customers to have appropriate face protection. Please also respect our gifts and handle as little as possible, also the unframed artwork is cellophane wrapped but try to handle by the edges.We have a perspex screen at the desk and will wear suitable protection if we have to come out to assist.

We will of course still be doing click and collect, free local delivery and still offer a mail order service for customers at a distance. Post and collect options come up at web checkout.

Sorry about all the do and do not`s but we are in exceptional times. Stay safe.

Local Delivery

With our click and collect in person facility, we are happy to offer delivery in the Newport, Wormit and Tayport areas at no extra cost. This may be of help to those who are not able to call in person.. We will do this once weekly, . All we ask is clear route details and a safe place to leave goods if nobody is in.

As we stay in Perth, we can also offer local delivery there, but not in town centre.Regret we cannot offer free delivery in Dundee area.

Origin of Goods

We always try to favour smaller independent suppliers, many from Scotland and North of England. We have very few imported items and several like our favourite felt animals are from Fair Trade makers. Our policy now is nothing Chinese, all this crisis starting from there and many of their workers are not fairly treated.

All our Artwork is of course by local well established printmakers who have a reputation for quality work, usually produced in the Print Studio at Dundee Contemporary Arts. We do not sell mass produced reproductions of artists work, in fact many works are 1 of 1 monoprints and digital art is specially created and produced in limited numbers.

Post Free

As well as collect in person, we can now post some small, light gifts post free. Please allow a reasonable time as post is a bit slower just now. Categories are sets of greeting cards, books and zines, tea towels, coasters, silk scarves and jewellery excluding the new felt range. All are sourced from independent UK makers so give us a chance instead of Amazon or Ebay. Please contact us for more information. These can be ordered online.We will usually post towards the end of the week .
