SIMPATICA: A Unique Home and Gift Emporium.

A Vintage Charm!


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

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


The Kingsbarns shop is located in The Old Post Office, right on the main road between Crail and St Andrews in Fife. Just recently opened,  please see the opening hours below.

Simpatica merchandise can also be found at The Scottish Antiques Centre in Abernyte, on the North side of the Dundee to Perth dual carriageway. Open 10-5, 7 days a week.

And also in Rob Walkers Studio at Guardbridge on the East side of the river, next to The Guardbridge Inn. Open 11-5, Closed on Tuesdays.

Follow the signs for The Guardbridge Inn & Rob Walker's.


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.

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.
