Long time readers may remember that last winter (a year ago! OMG, time goes too quickly), I did some lino printing classes with Jenni Douglas, so I was super excited when she announced that she would be taking over the old Century General Store on Marchmont Road to open her own shop, and we went to visit on Sunday. It all looked so pretty as you might expect with all the brightly coloured products. It’s pretty much the same set up as it was before, it’s mainly a shop with a table in the window (no picture as there was someone sat at it. They did offer to move but I felt bad), and one outside, though she did say she plans to add more outside seating as the weather improves. The thing I’m most looking forward to is the classes she’ll be running. They’ll be small, just 4-6 people, inside the main shop space. From April, hopefully!
Oh, and I bought that little succulent owl in the last picture. It’s our first succulent, can you believe it, only 6 years or so after they started being everywhere. I don’t really like having plants in the house, I am not green fingered at all, and I worry I might kill them. Hopefully this one is hardy enough to survive being mistreated!
Jenni also has a website in case you’re not local.
