Our Art Gallery at Many Thanks

In 2014, we expanded our Gift Shop to include an Art Gallery and each month we proudly display Art Exhibitions from local artists to showcase their work and allow people to view and purchase any artwork that they would like to take home.

In addition to displaying work from local artists, we also run Live Painting events at Many Thanks where you can come along and see our fabulous artists creating artwork and demonstrating their skills. You can ask the artists any questions you may have and also pick up some tips from them while you watch.

Our monthly artist rotation begins with a preview night on the 1st of each month when we launch our newest exhibition and we welcome everyone to come along and meet the artist. If you are a local artist looking to showcase your work within our gallery, we’d love to hear from you. Contact Carol for more information.

Beautiful gift ideas, lovely home baking and always a warm welcome and a good laugh to be had! Love seeing the paintings by different artists, and the craft classes have something for everyone. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

I think it creates a wonderful atmosphere of welcome, and a place for those of us who need to express our creativity as a way of healing.

Warm, welcoming, inclusive, inspirational, creative and educational not to mention the baking and the banter…who wouldn’t want to spend an hour at Many Thanks.

Great little shop. Always go here when the Mauchline holy fair is on. Its a great little shop with lots of original gifts, worth a visit when passing through Mauchline.


Well what a wee gem Many Thanks is. From the second you step through the door the warmth of the welcome hits you straight in the heart! The gift shop has lots of lovely individual and unique items, something for everyone. Carol treats everyone like a long lost friend and has a smile and a giggle to share. It’s family run and although it must be very hard work at times their passion is clear to see. The cafe is very clean and well laid out with inspirational quotes on all of the tables. Well worth a visit!

Many Thanks is a beautifully thought out gift shop where you will not be able to leave empty-handed! Carol and her family greet you with a very warm welcome and the time will go by very quickly. We enjoyed our first visit here today and it certainly won’t be the last!
