Ruby Tuesday, the quirky gift shop on Alnwick’s Narrowgate run by Maria and Dave Sibbald, which is also a co-operative of 12 local artists and crafters, celebrates its first birthday next Tuesday.

To mark the occasion, there will be special offers from tomorrow.

Maria said: “Our shop has grown into a great shopping experience, whether it’s a handcrafted gift in glass, wood or fabric, a more quirky gift from our vintage or French range, or something more traditional, perhaps Tutti Jewellery, a Harris Tweed handbag, a scented candle or some fabulous Belgian chocolates. We are also stockists for the locally-manufactuered Everlong Superior Finish paint which enhances our shabby-chic furniture range.

“Pop in to see our offers and help us enjoy our birthday celebrations with a free raffle, which will be held

on Tuesday for all customers.”
