I have to admit that it was the word cupcake that got me into Miss Katie’s shop the first time. Not going to lie, I was a little disappointed to not see a case of sweet treats but I soon got over it after seeing what else was on offer – the shop is literally dripping in unique, vintage-inspired jewellery.
The whole place is beautifully decorated with vintage furniture, frames and tea sets which display a huge selection of distinct and unusual items. There are pendants made from old postage stamps or comic strips, earrings with teacups dangling from them and beautiful pearl bracelets. Each time I visit I find interesting new pieces. Recently I’ve been admiring the wax seal pendants and beautiful freshwater pearl earrings.
None of the items are too pricey, especially for such unusual items. The average price for a necklace is around £20. Even if you don’t make it the shop in Edinburgh Miss Katie has an online shop as well where you can buy a small selection of the items on sale in her shop.
It’s a small shop and can be a bit overwhelming to look through all the items on offer but it’s worth taking the time to find the perfect piece.
Even without the cupcakes Miss Katie’s is the perfect place for a wee treat.
