New Stallholders + Mother’s Day + AT HOME Trade Event

Summer has gone and the Highlands are as pretty as a picture with the trees changing colour in all their Autumn splendour. It really is a glorious time of year to plan a road trip and drive around the area.  Of course whilst you’re here, be sure to allow some time for a spot of shopping at Dirty Janes and check out a few new stallholders, including;

Brocante Gourmande at Shop 23, who are well stocked with an abundance of vintage French kitchenalia including pots, utensils, china, cake tins and more, all sourced from Brocante Markets in France. 

Deborah Cronin Design at Shop 305 offers a stunning selection of unique pieces including vintage framed butterflies, artworks, lamps, coral, taxidermy and furniture. It’s impossible to walk past this fascinating space.


Can you believe Mother’s Day is just around the corner? The Tea Salon has already booked out for high teas on the day, but don’t worry you can take one home (or to the park) for Mum instead!

Boxed High Teas include a variety of pin-wheel sandwiches, two savouries, your choice of classic, rose, lavender, date or feta cheese cones and our favourite selection of three sweets, at just $29 per person. Please your order by phoning the Tea Salon on 02 4862 1522. You can collect your box from the window in Banyette Street between 9-10am on Sunday 13th.  Your Vintage Occasion Tea Salon
