Movember at kilau, old aberdeen

Gentlemen. It’s nearing Movember, that most gentlemanly time of year, and we are issuing a rallying call.
This year we are opening up Team Kilau to customers and we have a little incentive to sweeten the deal; if you join our team and make a donation of £10, you’ll receive a 10% discount on all purchases for the entire month of November!
There is a sting in the tail, however. If any of you gentlemen currently enjoy a discount, it will be suspended for the month. So really, it’s better to join us. JOIN US.

A back garden update…

What was that? You haven’t heard anything new about the back garden? It doesn’t mean things haven’t been done. Check out this heap of photos!

Some soil enriching compost. (Thanks Dad!)

I broke the fork. I’m putting this down to my super strength rather than buying cheap tools. Right?

Some finely turned soil.

Mum plan ding up the garden like a champ! All the plants here have been gifted to us by the wonderful Diana – cuttings from her own garden no less! Cheers Diana!

A cracking job and looking brilliant!

And we may also have bought us some chairs! Its getting closer, folks!

Today is the day!


Keep your fingers crossed and send us happy thoughts, folks! Today is the day our planning application for upstairs at our shop in Old Aberdeen goes before the development management sub-committee. Serious stuff.

I’ll keep you updated with the (good) news when we hear it!

Opening hours at kilau, campus

Hello all,

It’s been a while! This is just a wee note to let you know that kilau, campus is reducing it opening hours for the next 3 weeks. It’s the Uni Easter break you see.

We’ll be closing at 5pm on weekdays until 15th April then open our usual hours again, 8am – 6.30pm, from Monday 18th April.

For those of you having a break over this time I hope you have a great time!

A New Year at Kilau

Goodness me! The New Year already!

We’re getting slowly back into the swing of things at both shops. For those of you who were down on campus yesterday (Mon 3rd) I’m sorry for misleading you buy saying in the previous post that we would be open! We’re open today tho and Amanda is slinging out fine lattes.

latte buy Amanda

We’ll be closing today at 5pm but open our usual hours as of tomorrow.

2010 was been a great year, seeing our first full year being open at campus. We’ve got some great plans for upstairs and the garden space out back so stay tuned.

We’ve got some good exhibitions lined up for little belmont street too, starting Sunday 9th January with work from Sarah McGarva and Laura Castle (more on that soon).

Thank you for all the support this past year at campus, and the past SEVEN(!) years at little belmont street. 2011 is going to be great!
