Shopping local at V&A Dundee

Last week I got dressed, I mean, properly dressed. Instead of my uniform of athleisure-minus-the-hoody I wore split-hem jeans and a wool coat, and slipped into a cute pair of shoes for a work appointment (for Dundee uni) at V&A Dundee.

I was there to see a graduate who had been selected to be part of Tea Green‘s new pop-up design store at the museum, knitwear designer Lyndsey Currie, along with 29 other local designers and makers working across textiles, glasswear, ceramics, jewellery, and art/prints. After I had a good chat with Lyndsey for the university’s blog and social media, I took the opportunity to look around the shop and buy a few Christmas presents. It was nice knowing I was supporting a small business while getting something original for my husband and mum.

V&A Dundee offered me a gift from the shop and I chose the most gorgeous grey hat by Island Nation Studio.
