I’m Carol Speir, the owner of Many Thanks along with my Husband, Robert. Welcome to our website! Having grown up in Ayrshire (in Robert Burns Country nonetheless) and with a love for everything Scottish, I had an idea in 2003. I wanted to start a business offering gifts, jewellery, home accessories and much more with a mission statement of:
Since then we have fulfilled our promise and to this day 95% of our suppliers are local or Scottish based businesses providing a wide range of gifts many of which are unique, handmade, traditional and make excellent gifts for friends and family as well as great gifts to send back home if you are visiting Scotland on your travels.
In 2014 we expanded the business to include a Coffee Shop, Art Gallery and Craft Classes. In 2020 we continue to showcase our wonderful local artists and provide various uplifting craft classes. Our Coffee Shop hosts Coffee Mornings, however prior booking is required as the Coffee Shop is no longer a walk in service in 2020.
We run evening Supper Nights throughout the year too including our Burns Supper to pay homage to our local bard who put Ayrshire on the map, celebrated by people throughout the world.
We look forward to seeing you when you pop in to Many Thanks to browse our wide range of products for that perfect gift!
