A local entrepreneur has transformed the Kirkton of Rayne Church Hall into her own luxury pop-up Christmas shop.

Rebecca Jamieson officially opened Kirkton of Rayne Christmas Shop on Saturday, October 31.

The hall was previously lying empty however Rebecca has transformed the premises into a unique Christmas shop that will now be open to the public in the run up to the festive period.

Rebecca said: “I wanted to create a relaxing but high quality Christmas shopping experience in a beautiful rural location, different from the usual festive craft fairs and table top events.

“My background is in interior design and retail and I love finding special and unusual Christmas decorations as well as decorating my own house for Christmas.”

Rebecca added: “The pop-up shop will combine those two passions and I am very excited to share them.”

Customers are now able to find a range of handcrafted Christmas decorations, stocking fillers and interior accessories within the Kirkton of Rayne Christmas Shop.

Items created by Scottish artists are available, including jewellery by Hamespun and linocut prints by Heather Mathieson.

Along with fellow interior design enthusiast, Nina Eggens of Nina’s Apartment in Lethenty Mill, Inverurie, Rebecca’s shop will showcase a range of new and vintage furniture and home decor items for sale.

The Kirkton of Rayne Christmas Shop also features a café which serves hot drinks and home bakes provided by Vanilla Chocolate boutique caterers.

The shop is now open from 11am to 4pm Thursday to Sunday throughout November and December.

Looking ahead, the shop will host a Christmas wreath making workshop on Friday, December 4.

Everyone is welcome along to the special event.
