About Willow Boutique
Hello, I’m Gayle, the owner of Willow Boutique.
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve wanted to own my own shop. Well that was after wanting to be a nurse, then a fashion designer! I did actually go on to get an Honours Degree in Fashion and Textile Design Management at Heriot-Watt University but the next Vivienne Westwood I was not! However, I have never lost my inspiration in fashion, accessories and textiles and with years of retail experience at management level behind me I have found the path I was always meant to take. I love my job, I love all my suppliers and I love all my customers who support my small business. I also have the best team at home in the form of my Husband, Andy and 2 boys, Lewis (9) and Daniel (7).
Willow Boutique is based in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. Since August 2016 I have created a haven for new baby gifts, wooden toys, nursery decor, womenswear and gifts for all. Every purchase is beautifully gift wrapped in tissue paper, whether buying in-store or online, to make it that little bit special. Since opening I have become a stockist to so many fantastic brands and as well as having popular names such as Blade & rose, Powell Craft, Sass & Belle and best-selling Run & Fly, we also love supporting local businesses and designers such as screen printer Kate and the Ink, Typography specialist Heather and Haggis and sustainable eco jewellery maker Pretty Pink (to name but a few). Enjoy having a browse round the store and you’ll see for yourself what an ecclectic and well thought out source of products I stock!
