Well worth a visit
Aug 2019 • Business
Well worth a visit if you’re looking for quality Scottish art. Blown away by the work on show. Huge range of original paintings, prints, jewellery, etc. Unbelievable that all the money goes to the artists.

Popped in yesterday after finishing hanging pics at our exhibition upstairs... Had never been before but simply blown away by the range of goods, more importantly the range OF TALENT which is available in the exchange. All profits to the artists, another amazing gesture in today's world of money worshipping!! Artists rent their space then keep any money from sales. Hurry up exchange , get more of these throughout Scotland, this is such a superb venture. I am going to single out Rhona Morrison Art as my own particular favourite artist from my visit. Can't wait to come back. Hope that's allowed 😁

The Scottish Design Exchange at Ocean Terminal is most certainly worth a visit. Full of wonderful unique gifts designed and crafted by some very talented up and coming Scottish artists. Five stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I love this shop..it is full of wonderfully crafted gifts that are brimming with originality and creativity. Shopping here supports artists and charities from the local area and further afield in Scotland. The staff are so helpful and friendly..every shelf is a new delight.

A hidden gem of creativity
May 2017 • Business
I highly recommend visiting the Scottish Design exchange! With a cornucopia of creative talent all from Scotland, it's too good to miss when visiting Edinburgh. Paintings, prints, handmade jewellery, textiles, clothing, handcrafted ceramics, books ...the list is endless. The shop is conveniently located on the 1st Floor within the Ocean Terminal shopping centre in Leith - it's right next to Debenhams and alongside the entrance to the Royal Yacht Britannia visitor centre.

Visit and browse and tell your friends!

If you are shopping in Oceaon Terminal then worth seeking out the Design Exchange and have a look at the work of Scottish artists. Great place for a unique present while supporting artists and designers. There is also a section with books from Independent Publishers.

Situated in the shopping complex, this "shop" is nice to walk around and admire the local artists work.
Some people are very clever...

Wonderful place to shop for quirky art presents
Apr 2017 • Solo
Situated in Ocean Terminal in Leith, Edinburgh, this store is brilliant for anyone shopping for original art work (paintings, sculpture, jewellery, cards, fashion etc). There is a little 'chocolate box' element with some of the artwork but there's also loads of wonderfully dynamic art; Michael Dawson and Louise Anderson.

Visit and enjoy !
