If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love blankets. Seriously, they are everywhere in my flat. You might remember the Tartan Blanket Co from my Home Comforts post back in August so I was very excited to hear they were opening a pop up shop for the festive season. Last week I headed along to the new shop, which is located on Great Junction Street, for the launch night to see what’s on offer.
As the name might suggest, the Tartan Blanket Co’s pop up shop is full of cosy blankets. As well as classic tartans there are block colours, traditional herringbones and modern patterns in various sizes and types of wool and cashmere. There were far too many beautiful blankets to choose a favourite, but a couple that caught my eye the most were the Aqua Herringbone Blanket and the Coral Stripe Blanket. Ahhhh, please Santa, bring me more blankets!
But it’s not just blankets you’ll find in the beautifully decorated pop up shop. There are also lots of lambswool scarves, quirky prints, little home accessories and decorations, scented candles, notebooks, jewellery and more. I love the wide selection of products in the shop, they all compliment each other perfectly and you could get a big chunk of your Christmas shopping done all at once. At the launch event, we each got to pick a little gift card from the Christmas tree and mine contained a £10 voucher – so I promptly treated myself to one of the scented candles! The Winter Scent candle I chose is beauuutifully sweet and fresh, and I loved the equally festive Mulled Pear & Spices scent too.
So, whether you’re a huge blanket fan like me or just fancy checking out a new shop full of lovely lifestyle pieces, you should definitely head down to Leith to have a browse through the Tartan Blanket Co’s pop up. You can find them at 170B Great Junction Street and they’re open from now until the 23rd December. Find out more on the Tartan Blanket Co blog.
