Ethical shopping @FairEnoughBlog!


We take a huge amount of pride and pleasure in working directly with around 150 different artists, makers, designers, illustrators and creators here in The Red Door Gallery.  Having such a large range of sources makes for a lot of extra communication behind the sceenes, but we believe it’s also what keeps our Gallery Boutique fresh, intrieguing and adds miles to our value as an ethically practicing independant buisness.  It is just heartwarming to know that our efforts are appreciated both by our loyal customers, and by our makers whose practices we support and promote.   You can imagine how thrilled we are this  month, with a  lovely write up in the ethical shopping Fair Enough Blog!

Sarah started the Fair Enough blog in 2012 with a challecge to herself to buy all her clothes for a year entirely Fair Trade, second hand or vintage.  Since compleating this project, Sarah has mooved to Switzerland and still bloggs with passion and flair about the ethical shopping options she discovers on her travels.  We are all a flutter with joy to have been included in her blog as a great spot “If you’re looking for a truly authentic souvenir or a quirky gift”!  Thanks Sarah!

The Red Door Gallery as featured in My Scandinavian Scotland!
The image above is the first of our new online adventure we are calling Saturday Superstars!  Ashley and Nicky, who are here each Saturday are going to be snapping our Saturday Superstars our favorite Instagram filter of the moment.  A capricous curation project, showcasing our customer’s favorite pieces of the day and the conversations they’ve sparked in the gallery.  The rubber bracelets have just won an eco friendly design award, the bear featured is off to The USA as a thank you gift and the beautiful frames are the newest addition to our lovely, longstanding customer Lesley’s home.

When Lesley was in our bricks and mortar gallery a couple of weeks back she selected Elephant, Lonely Metropolis and Dancing Girls as you can see above, and Lesley also kindly introduced Angie to our wares, who snapped up a Tat Lady of her own!  Angie’s “My Scandinavian Scotland” blog is a brilliant place to click on over to for some Scandi inspiration, and looky here!  A very lovely review of The Red Door Gallery:

“I did not know what to expect when I first went into the shop/gallery, as when you hear the word gallery you tend to associate it with pure white walls, and minimal pictures dotted about, or more grand with ornate gilt frames adorning all the pictures of some true masters!! I would say this is a gallery/shop for the people!! :-)…..It is lovely for browsing as well as for the more serious shopper.  The staff are fantastic and super friendly”.

Thanks Angie!

Are you in dog house for forgetting Valentine's day?

Are you in dog house for forgetting Valentine's day?

Well, the day of love can be a little fraught if it means more to one half of a couple than the other, so perhaps raising a smile with something a little cheeky might go down well!

How to get out of the dog house: “Sausages” is dog for “sorry” – right? Screen print By Charlotte Farmer £20.

Get a bit of the devils  love potion inside you!  La Pocion De Amor Del Diablo, A4 print, £10.

Always Right (BLUE)

Definately cheeky, but it is the perfect reminder to your partner that they are, indeed, always right!  Give them the gift of your being wrong, about everything, for ever, and say it in print!  Betcha it gets a chuckle!
Screen print By Andy Smith,  £75

We are open in Edinburgh all weekend, and our online shop with Valentine’s section, is available to post your goodies as usual!

Happy Valentine's Day Y'all!
