Love from Indie Street is a virtual high street featuring some of Edinburgh’s best independent shops, services and restaurants. Enjoy some much needed retail therapy from the comfort of your own home, pick up that perfect gift for Christmas an upcoming birthday or just to treat yourself – why not, you deserve it!
We think this website is such a great idea, it only recently launched and already has so many of our favourites listed. I’m an incredibly difficult person to buy gifts for (much to EdinBloggette’s frustration), but with Love from Indie Street I’ll be able to add a few gifts to my wish-list and send on to make gift buying a breeze.
Supporting local retailers is so important, not only do you help the local economy, but you support entrepreneurs and help maintain Edinburgh’s diverse shopping community.
Love from Indie Street was founded by Rebecca Christensen, a life long fan of independent retailers, with the aim of shaking up the online gift market and opening it up to allow independent and local businesses to get in on the action.
”Love from Indie Street makes buying thoughtful gifts easy. With a couple of clicks they can be purchased anywhere. We believe that location shouldn’t be restrictive and everyone should be able to give their friends and family a meaningful, personal and original gift purchased from a local and much loved independent business.
