The Wee Gift Shop: Troon's Treasure Trove of Scottish Design

The Wee Gift Shop: Troon's Treasure Trove of Scottish Design

Nestled in the heart of Troon, The Wee Gift Shop is a vibrant hub for contemporary Scottish design. It's a place that celebrates the Scotland's creative spirit, showcasing a unique collection of gifts guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

I am thrilled to be one of their stockists, and recently had the chance to chat with the shop owner, Gayle, and manager, Rebecca.



Finding Inspiration and a New Path

Owner Gayle, had been working in corporate marketing for over 20 years. She was ready for a change and saw an opportunity when a friend, who previously owned the shop, was looking to move on. Gayle took the leap and hasn't looked back.


Supporting Scottish Makers and Bringing Joy

Her previous experience working in "re-shoring" in the electronics industry translated perfectly to her vision for The Wee Gift Shop. She strives to support Scottish makers and curate a collection of unique gifts that you won't find anywhere else. The shop offers a simple studio shopping style that is designed to spark joy with every item.


A Welcoming Space for Gift-Givers

The Wee Gift Shop attracts a mix of people that shop with us but the thing they all have in common is that they are looking for ‘something a little different’.⁠ The shopping experience and atmosphere in the shop is really important and upbeat music fills the store, thanks to their resident Alexa programmed to play "Happy Songs."



A Must-Visit in Troon

If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind gift or simply want to experience a delightful shop filled with Scottish creativity, The Wee Gift Shop should be on your Troon itinerary. Be sure to pop in and say hello to Gayle and Rebecca 🌞
