Simply The Best

Opened in 2009 as an outlet for Fairtrade and Fair Trade goods, Simply The Best is recognised by many as offering the widest range in Scotland. Unique, handcrafted, quality products may be found in abundance here; wooden, wire beaded and soapstone sculptures, hand-rolled incense, Himalayan Salt Lamps, Dream catchers, Friendship Bracelets, funky children’s clothes from Hooligans Kids and a great range of wooden and crocheted toys and rattles for the wee ones.

Homewares and tableware are well-represented, as are scarves, bags and hair accessories in many different styles. We also have a large range of greetings cards and hand made wrapping paper.

While maintaining our core values, we now also stock Scottish souvenirs; with Dornoch pens, fridge magnets and mugs firm favourites. Our selection of branded cuddlies, toys, games and collectables grows weekly.

If you like to dabble in ‘World Music’, this is Simply The Best place to visit, with CD offerings from Putumayo Music and World Music Network representing practically all musical nations and styles in a range of presently well over 270 titles.

Simply The Best has been a Member of The British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers since 2010.

Simply an “Aladdin’s Cave”, where only the Best will do.
