In the heart of the beautiful Scottish Borders lived a girl with a vision. A vision to add a little colour and sparkle to everything she touched. She got together with some like-minded people to bring to you a local market, with a difference, a local loving difference.
Welcome to the Colourful Edits, a collaboration with lovely people, passionate about their industry and excited to share ideas and happenings with you.
The Colourful Edits is a local market, that features the work of independent makers and designers from across the Scottish Borders.
Founded this year, The Colourful Edits has the potential to grow into something rather wonderful.
More of a gathering, than a market, this event will combine design, colour, style, trends, delicious flavours and scents, great refreshments and a fun community spirit under one awesome roof - inside the beautiful Darnick Village Hall.
The Year of the WOMAN
The hope this Winter’ 18, is for us to look after and CELEBRATE the women in our lives. This market will give you the chance to get together with your friends (without the kids!), shop, have a nibble and work on your personal Christmas wish list. You can even persuade your hubby or partner to come down for an hour of secret shopping, as we are offering personal shopping stylists who will be on hand for those who require help. Just hand us over your wish list!
An opportunity to learn and make time for you.
What can you expect? Well, on arrival you will be greeted with a warm smile and a delicious tipple of (non alcoholic) mulled wine.
