First Trade Days started with the idea to create a place to showcase and promote the work of local and small run, independent makers. A place to provide local and ethical shopping to the quality conscious shopper. Each product in the shop has an honest provenance and a functional design – classic items that are made to last and are not part of the throwaway nature of the world, items that make for more sustainable and ethical choices.
As the majority of pieces in the shop are made locally here in Scotland the buyer can help small businesses grow whilst shopping ethically, allowing us to support non-corporate individuals and makers. Every item in the shop has been carefully selected for its quality craftsmanship and honest, handmade uniqueness, making them a joy to own and use.
We aim to support responsible consumerism, one in which a more long lasting approach of making is valued over our mass, throwaway culture. The idea of buy less, buy better, buy to last. These pieces and their production is sustainable, durable and ethical. We want the products to age well and to be a pleasure to have as a part of your everyday life.
