    “… Scotland has a wealth of creative talent … but with no shop window for their products and services, because they can’t afford high street rents and don’t have massive marketing budgets. This model solves both problems at once.”

  • Scotsman. 10 Sep 2018

    “If you can’t beat the high street, rethink it … turn the model on its head and create a model where the artists and designers get the lion’s share of the profit.”
