About Us


Shooftie opened its doors in 2014. It was formed by 3 creative businesses - Lomond Soap, Diana Drummond and Meadwell’s as a platform to bring together Scottish Crafters, allowing them to promote their talents under one roof. We have a variety of crafters offering a wide range of products. The shop has evolved and is now being ran by one of the original founders, Margaret Meadwell. It has now become a family business. Margaret, Kevin and their daughter Victoria are excited to continue to expand Shooftie and build on its success.

MYO Home

One of the original ideas behind MYO Home was just how much you could transform a room just by changing your lampshades and cushions. The High Street and internet were awash with plain white, cream or grey lampshades but what about colour? What about pattern.  So over the last seven years I have helped with a few small home transformations in Helensburgh and the surrounding areas. Though some of my lampshades have made it as far as Abu Dhabi, Barbados, Baku and Cornwall.

I remember one of my very first customers buying a lampshade and base, now this was a fairly significant piece in both size and fabric, and she came back the next day to buy a matching one as her husband hadn’t noticed! I also recall the first person to tell me that all the Lampshades in her home were now from MYO Home! I love helping people create beauty and comfort in their homes and being in a shop really helps you get to know people in a way that the internet doesn’t however these are unusual times we find ourselves in and some people are understandably cautious of unnecessary trips out and although we have been working hard to bring a wider selection of interior accessories closer to your door we are still restricted by social distancing laws, as to how many people can get in to our little shop and see our range of affordable luxuries.

So now in conjunction with Shooftie we bring our collaboration www.shooftiemyohome.com. Now you can spend hours browsing our collections from the comfort of your home.
Happy browsing!
