Sponsored: Supporting Lovely Local Businesses

While sticking to lockdown rules has been necessary for the country in reducing the spread of Covid 19, it has had extremely negative effects on small businesses which are known and loved by many.

Support Local

It is our wish at No.1 to see local Scottish brands flourish as lockdown eases.

Have a read about these three businesses whom we have had the pleasure of working with recently, and whom we can’t wait to see shine in the coming months!

Spoiled Life

Welcome to Spoiled Life, a new lifestyle concept store and café located in the heart of St Andrews.

Spoiled Life is characterised by its eclectic, relaxed and contemporary verve – a mix of Scandinavian design, Moroccan style and European trends – and everything in store reflects the aesthetic of its owners, Glenn and Steve.

The selection of brands available include those of independent designers, such as House Doctor and Rachel Entwistle, alongside well-established names, like Jonathan Ward and Melody Rose.

From contemporary and timeless jewellery to home accessories and furniture, each item stems from both Glenn and Steve’s love for interior design and travel.

Browsing inside Spoiled Life will be a journey in itself, dictated by the textures and colour palettes that alternate between the different areas of the shop. This is a space where you can browse for unique items for your home and relax with a cup of freshly ground coffee – welcome to a brand new kind of shopping experience!
