Recommendations for The Brave and the Beautiful

CLASSbased on 1 review

Quirky, unusual but awesome!

What an interesting find! This store sells some really interesting goodies, each of which has an uplifting backstory. Here's someone who is trying their best to help ex-service personnel develop their own wee businesses, with a range of crafts, memorabilia, books - you name it. Well worth a look if you are after an unusual gift and a very friendly welcome to boot. Definitely on my favourites list.
