The Snapdragon Story

I have always loved small, independent shops. Initially, I had a vision for my own interiors and homeware store and, when the shop came up in Bruntsfield, my favourite area of the city,  it felt like the perfect opportunity. 

It had previously been a flower shop, so as I loved flowers and fragrance (and had previously been a partner in a floristry business), I’d include flowers and candles too.

I’d planned for flowers to be a smaller part of the shop’s offering, but, as flowers have a way of doing, they quickly bloomed into the main attraction! So here we are, almost a decade on...

Our obsessions?

Roses. You’ll find a few stems sneaked into pretty much everything we do.

Fragrance. ‘The shop smells amazing’. Always. It’s the most common comment when a customer walks through our door.

Great customer service. We want your visit to our shop or online store to be memorable. And for you to keep coming back.

Our ethos & values?

Sustainable and seasonal. We love creating natural bouquets with life and movement and use seasonal stems wherever possible. We work in sustainable ways. We buy locally grown flowers when in season. We stock brands with a similar outlook to our own.

Friendly, approachable and inclusive. Our team is like a second family and many of us have been together for years and years. We have settled in Edinburgh from all over the world- France, Russia, Australia, Zimbabwe and the UK- united by our love of flowers and shared values. Everyone's contribution is valued. We welcome our customers in this same spirit.

Beautiful and useful design. Our home and lifestyle goods champion smaller British brands and makers as well as some larger brands with a natural aesthetic.
