Welcome Welcome to Sleepy Thistle. The shop/workshop is part of the Hirsel Arts & Crafts Centre on the outskirts of Coldstream which marks the border between Scotland and England. We sell unique and original handmade gifts and accessories which are inspired by the beautiful surroundings of the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. We offer a selection of handcrafted jewellery, tweed and tartan brooches, home accessories, greetings cards, postcards and a variety of children’s and local interest books. We also stock a range of hair accessories by Daisy Dots Boutique and Gnome Home tealights by Gnome Sweet Gnome.
