Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum have a wonderful little gift shop at the museum which stocks a range of products, from local artwork and pottery, children’s books and sustainable toys, to a wide range of traditional damask linen.
We have plenty of treats and stocking fillers for the little ones this Christmas. From Best Year’s ethically sourced knitted dinosaur pals and rubber teething toys, novelty Xmas T-rexs or Diplodocuses to jazz up your tree, and our ever popular ‘Victorian Ipad’ slates, we certainly have a treat for everyone. You could even walk away with one of Andrew Carnegie’s fluffy pet bunnies and give one a good home this Christmas.
We also stock a wide range of children’s books such Rossie the Rabbit (written by former Museum Curator, Lorna Owers), Peacocks in the Glen Again, and some of the ‘Little People, Big Dreams’ series which are sure to inspire your kids!
On Saturday 16th November there will be a Festive Shopping Day at the museum with selected lines discounted across our shop and some small activities to occupy the little ones as you browse.

For Fife for Kid followers we can offer you a 10% discount on ceramics over £9 – just pop into the Studio and say “It’s our first Christmas” to one of the staff members.
We have Gift Vouchers which can be made out to any value, and our popular Bring Me Back packs – where you purchase a ceramic of your choice, we wrap it up and include a tag which tells the recipient of the present what to do; again something for every age (including adults!).
