Skate Rumple Orkney on Etsy
We’ve also been busy crafting and designing our own creations. Keep an eye on our social media for new products. We’ll be updating our Etsy shop with goodies soon!
In our Bothy shop, there will Mandy’s artist mohair teddy bears, as well as a few on Etsy. You can commission a similar bear if the one you like is already sold – all bears are hand-sewn with it’s own character so each bear is unique!
Nick will also have his driftwood and glass boats in the shop. The driftwood is picked at local beaches and each glass sail hand cut and crafted. Nick takes commissions for boats too.
This year’s Skate Rumple Christmas Cards are little baby Ty in his cosy jumper opening a present…
Inspired by Ty, who feels the cold and loves wearing his little ganseys, Ellen illustrated him using gouache and ink in her new studio. These cards are then printed in Orkney, and packaged well away from all our goats who love to nibble packages!
If you’d like a pack, cards can be found on our Etsy shop here: Baby Goat Christmas Cards and also in our little Bothy shop too, where you might meet the wee man himself.
