Treat yourself to something Scottish
The gallery and shop, located in the heart of Glasgow’s West End, is the brainchild of John and Janet Turner, a husband and wife team who are passionate about promoting Scottish creativity and ensuring that there’s always something new to find at their shop in De Courcy’s.
You’ll find an incredible range of enchanting products for your home, friends or family. Wonderful handcrafted designs to treasure or something cute and quirky to lift your spirits.
I love the beautiful jewellery by Aleksandra Design, Libby Walker’s wonderful prints, Janet’s own knitted designs, Agnes MacLean Glass , Handmade StitchesCards, Allan Richardon’s prints of iconic Glasgow scenes, Ian Mulholland prints, Hannah Longmuir cards, Skin-a-Licious mini soaps and wonderful designs by QueenieBrowne.
Janet and John’s retail outlet in De Courcy’s Arcade in Cresswell Lane is a haven for Scottish crafters and artists. The range on display is vast and you will also find woodwork, jewellery, photographs, homewares, pin cushions, needle cases and irresistible hand made buttons.
Showcase for Independent Crafters and Artists
Everything is made in Scotland from artists and craft makers in Glasgow and Lanarkshire to Edinburgh and Aberdeeen. This concept is very popular with tourists and locals alike.
” We aim to provide a showcase for independent crafters and artists and have a range of items to suit all pockets and tastes”
Since this treasure trove opened in summer of 2013, Janet and John have built a loyal clientele and both stock and suppliers are expanding all the time. last count, approximately 60 Scottish makers have their designs on sale.The great thing about Janet & John is that you can always expect to find something new as the range changes and expands to showcase the work of different artists and crafters.
Janet herself is a talented crafter, spending many hours clicking away on her knitting needles to create some spectacular items such as unique ipod covers and snuggly berets. The idea of opening up a gallery type outlet was borne through the many hours spent attending craft fairs around Scotland. Janet and John saw a gap in the market where talented crafters and artists could display their designs in one place.
