Organising the gorgeous stock..

We are delighted with the range and quality of the items we’re going to be stocking in Maker’s gallery/shop at 2a High Street, Inverkeithing. With the interior nearing completion we had a chance to  take some photographs of some of the pieces. Just look at these beautiful and unique works of art and craft – and all of the ones shown here are created by Fife-based makers. Ceramics, prints, jewellery, mixed media, textiles, cards, badges and brooches – and there’s so much more to come…
