An Orkney sunset in Edinburgh, fast flowing Scottish waterfall in Glasgow and brand new displays in Stockbridge and Kirkwall – the shop windows are looking good! The teams tell us more…
Glasgow is buzzing with the Commonwealth Games. Coylah has noticed lots of athletes in their distinctive costumes admiring their ring cascade window display. She also met two ladies over from America for the Games:
“This is Hannah and her mum who are originally from Glasgow but now live in Virginia. Hannah’s mum has been a Sheila fleet customer for a while now has come back to Glasgow for the Games with Hannah. Hannah is wearing her first piece of Sheila fleet jewellery, a Shoreline Pebble necklace for her 21st birthday. Hannah’s uncle is the chairman on Team Scotland in the games and was presented to the Queen at the opening ceremony!”
Over in Edinburgh, Karen, manager in Jenners, has been amazed at the effect of their new window display. Rick’s stunning Orkney sunset adorns 10 windows in 5 elegant arches of Jenners on Princes Street, Edinburgh.
“An Australian woman spotted the Sheila Fleet window display from the tour bus she was on and came back to the store specifically to view our jewellery! She will now be wearing three pieces from our Wild Grasses collection when she is out and about in Melbourne. A couple from Seattle were so struck by the window display they came in and decided to take Sheila Fleet Jewellery home for themselves and their family as presents… their little piece of Scotland!”
A pleasant 10 minute walk from Jenners and the bustle of Princes Street you can find Sheila’s Boutique Gallery in historic Stockbridge. This beautiful area was built as Edinburgh’s Second New Town and is well worth a stroll through its cobbled streets. Enjoy the leafy, pleasant atmosphere and explore the many art galleries and unique selection of independent, artisan shops. The Stockbridge team have also been welcoming many visitors. Denise met Margaret from Ontario who visits Scotland every year. She saw the picture of Britt modelling the Snowdrops and had to have a piece for herself!
At home in Orkney, the Kirkwall Gallery window is displaying Sheila’s most recent collection "Daisies for Emily" as well as many other Orkney Crafts upastairs as well as downstairs. Canadian visitors Carol and Raylene diverted their tour to take them directly to the Gallery door when they saw the Sheila Fleet sign! Holly helped find the perfect Orkney memory for them.
All the teams extend a very warm welcome to you. Which window do you like best?
