First off, we hope you’ve had a wonderful festive season and a great start to 2020.
As you kick off your New Year with resolutions and ideas for the months ahead, we thought it only made sense for us to share our plans with you for the coming few months.
In January, we are very excited to be attending Scotland’s Trade Fair in Glasgow. We are looking forward to seeing all the exhibitions and perhaps picking up some new stock to place in our store come Summer.
Later in January, we plan to launch our range inspired by 25+ places along the famous North Coast 500 (NC500) touring route. The NC500, a 516 mile road trip around the coast of the Scottish Highlands passes through many beautiful towns, villages and beaches. We plan on selling a number of pieces inspired by numerous locations along the route. The first two designs we are working on are our coordinates T-Shirts and Prints.
This is a core design for Tidal Gifts created by Mairi-Anne as part of her Assynt Design work ( https://www.instagram.com/assyntdesign/ ) and has proven to be a best seller in our product range. You can see some examples of our Achmelvich Coordinates pieces below.
As we progress into 2020, we are excited to spend more time showcasing our suppliers pieces online. We have a number of partners who we are proud to work with, however going forward we would like to share more of their stories with our customers. We want you to know more about where your gifts are coming from and how they are made.
Another range we are excited to be working on in January thru April is our first Scottish Range. As Scots, we are extremely proud of our history, and as such we have been inspired to design more gifts incorporating inspiration from Scotland and the Highlands more specifically.
Lastly, Mairi-Anne plans to spend some more time enhancing her macrame skills with the intention of creating more beach themed and nautical pieces for sale in our store. We would encourage you to keep tabs on our website as we suspect these items will sell quickly, having been so popular in the past.
We plan to open our physical shop for the season just before Easter (April 2020) and our other ventures including Tidal Gifts: After Hours (our pop-up restaurant) will follow soon thereafter.
If you have any questions about our plans going forward then please drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
