Holmspun on High Street

 
 
 

Langholm High Street has a new business filling one of the vacant shops at the Townhead end of the street.
Jo Elliot has brought Holmspun Gifts and Crafts to Langholm. Jo lives in Newcastleton and is multi talented making pottery, custom made lampshades, cushions and a range of other crafts.
Jo also stocks the work of other crafts people and artists and is aiming to stock more in the future.
Her tasteful display is a delight when you walk into the shop and it is well worth a visit.
Her work is very reasonably priced and will make lovely gifts for friends or family or to treat yourself and enhance your home.
Jo’s two sons will start at Langholm Academy shortly and Jo is finally seeing her dream come true by opening her shop to showcase her very high quality crafts.


This week saw a lovely new shop open on Langholm High Street – Jo Elliot who lives in Newcastleton opened the doors to her gifts and crafts shop last week.
Jo has sold her crafts at the Langholm Producer’s Market and the Buccleuch Christmas Fayre in the past and is very excited to see her kitchen table dream come true.
Jo makes pottery, lampshades, cushions and a whole host of other crafts which are beautifully displayed in her shop and which are of a very high quality. She also stocks some ‘bought in’ goods as she says she knows not everyone likes ‘home made’.
As well as her own crafts Jo sells other artists’ crafts and art work and now stocks Paula Rowan’s watercolours, Janet Carson’s animal paintings and the art work of Wendy Patterson who recently exhibited in the Welcome to Langholm shop.
She will also stock jewellery and crochet bags from Quirky Thistle and stained glass from Frog Art.
Jo takes commissions for lampshades and can reupholster dining room chairs. She also makes cards and aprons.
Chuffed
Jo said
“I’m really chuffed to bits – this has been my long-term dream. I have twin boys who are about to start at Langholm Academy after the Summer and they’re calling it ‘our shop’. The first two people through the door on the day of opening were very positive with one of them saying ‘Wow’. I was really busy on the day of opening so I’m very pleased.”
One of her customers, Anna Cuthbert commented
“It’s a lovely shop and it’s really nice to see locally made things. There’s a good selection of goods and it’s great to see another shop opening on the High Street.”
