There's always an immense range of shopping options to browse when you visit The Royal Highland Show, and this year they will be building on from last year's successful shopping offering in 13th Avenue Arcade and the Lifestyle Village. A shopaholic's paradise, visitors can look forward to a superb retail offering that will leave them spoiled for choice.

Visitors to the four-day event are expected to spend more than £8 million on luxury brands, artwork, homeware and outdoor goods. Such is the reputation of the Royal Highland Show that many exhibitors return to the show annually. It is also an extremely attractive event for younger brands to gain exposure to a large-scale audience.

A long-standing exhibitor who will be back and promises to be as popular as ever will be Sculpture to Wear. Makers of the finest equestrian jewellery, this stand offers an amazing range of bespoke equine inspired pieces. 

Also returning is Als Couzens, a graphic designer and photographer from Edinburgh, who specialises in creating modern, fun and unique prints and gifts for all animal lovers. Taking inspiration from his passions, he has developed his unique styles producing custom artwork to brighten up any space.

For shoe lovers, a visit to Philip James Shoes, will not disappoint.  Set up in 2016 by two best friends on a mission to provide high-quality shoes for a fair price, the duo will be exhibiting their classic styles of brogues, Chelsea boots and ladies' boots.

Another new exhibitor to this year's Show is The Edinburgh Watch Company, founded by, Jonathan Gilbert in 2014, and specialising in sourcing the finest luxury timepieces in Europe. Jonathan loves nothing better than meeting potential clients face to face, discussing their requirements and using his knowledge and global connections to source beautiful unworn, as well as previously enjoyed timepieces.

With more than 1000 trade stands across the showground, there's plenty on offer, from Active Education, who produce educational wooden puzzles and toys for children, Galijah - Cashmere & Tweed, specialists in bespoke and individual tweed ladies and children's apparel to Quilts and Quillows, who sell handmade baby quilt play mats.

Show manager David Jackson said: "We want to attract the best whether that be animal exhibitors, food retailers or shopping.  The Royal Highland Show is a great place to pick up that perfect gift, outfit, garden ornament or painting that's different from what is stocked on the High Street."
