After a successful trial last year, the old church hall in Kirkton of Rayne is being transformed into a wonderful one-stop shop for the season.

A cafe and creative workshops are also part of the event.

The seasonal pop-up shop opens today (Thursday) and runs until Christmas Eve, Wednesdays to Sundays from 11am to 4pm.

Organiser Rebecca Jamieson said: “It is fantastic to have such support from the local community, who seem to love what we do since many people visited more than once last year and clearly enjoy the unique space we create.”

Nina Eggens of Nina’s Apartment, who lost her premises in the Lethenty Mill fire earlier this year, will be selling her vintage furniture and homewares.

She said: “I don’t have actual premises anymore, but pop-up events like this are a great way to keep my name out there and my business going. It is a characterful old hall and a perfect backdrop for my vintage pieces.”

Louis Little Haven and The Curious Bothy will also be at the event.

Furniture upcycling classes, wreath making workshops and a gin tasting event are also on the calendar.
