Nina's Apartment will soon be popping up with a dedicated vintage design corner in the old church hall of Kirkton of Rayne near Inverurie, which is being transformed into a luxury Christmas retail destination during November and December. 

The Kirkton of Rayne Christmas Shop, organised by local enterpreneur Rebecca Jamieson, will be selling a large selection of handcrafted Christmas decorations, stocking fillers, interior accessories and some carefully chosen gifts displayed on an eclectic collection of new and vintage furniture which will also be for sale.

In addition the pop-up shop will be stocking some special pieces by Scottish artists including Jewellery by Hamespun and linocut prints by Heather Mathieson.

A cozy and welcoming café corner will add the finishing touch to this unique retail destination, serving hot drinks and delicious home bakes from Vanilla Chocolate boutique caterers. 

A fresh Christmas wreath-making workshop will be held on Friday the 4th of December.
