I love creating unusual vintage painted furniture, and also restoring beautiful older items of furniture and mirrors.

You'll  also find lovely china, tea sets, glassware, wall art, mirrors, lamps, and many  other gifts and home accoutrements.


The Kingsbarns shop is located in The Old Post Office, on the main road between Crail and St Andrews in Fife. Look for the red post box!.


I will work with you to find furniture,  and accent pieces to  bring a truly different look to your home.   Whether you come  with a complete and specific vision for your home or looking for inspiration, I am here to help.

If you find it challenging to find GIFTS for certain people, SIMPATICA is the perfect place to buy wonderful, artistically inspired items that are absolutely one of a kind.

We are delighted to promote locally made knitwear, home decor items, art work and jewellery. NE Fife is home to a wonderful variety of talented makers and craftspeople, some of whom sell via Simpatica.  

If you yourself create unique items, please feel free to contact me, to discuss showcasing your items at Simpatica.

ST ANDREWS is  HOME OF GOLF, so we endeavour to keep a good stock of golf inspired items. We also try to keep a pleasing stock of SCOTTISH merchandise, for visitors to take home with them.


Simpatica, The Home and Gift Emporium is located in KINGSBARNS...11 Main St. next to the red post box!

You will also find a friendly and welcoming tea room attached to the vintage shop, where you can enjoy a lovely cuppa and some cake whilst browsing our lovely wee shop.
