On the 29th April I will be hosting a pop up at BAWN from 10am to 4pm. It's an ethical and sustainable fabric shop based in the heart of Strathbungo in the Southside of Glasgow.
'Bawn was set up with a focus on bridging the gap between the growing sustainable textile supply chain and the customer - home sewers and small fashion brands.'
Bevan has been generous enough to have me back for the 3rd time in her beautiful bottle green store. Use the chance to try on some of the new range and purchase take home styles on the day. Good news if you are a newsletter subscriber - you will receive a 10% discount password so sign up if you haven't already.
If you haven't been to Strathbungo before there are so many nice places to visit. You can get the train to Queens Park or the 38 bus which stops outside. There are also many on street parking areas around the Southside.
Here are some ideas for your day:
1. Ranjit's Kitchen
Ranjit’s Kitchen is a family-run food kitchen serving traditional Panjabi food in the heart of southside, Glasgow. Serving fresh food daily from 12 – 8.30pm (closed Mondays). Their Chai Tea is soooo good!
2. Wild Gorse Pottery.
A working pottery and shop specialising in wheel thrown, functional ware.
Modern makers, age-old methods. Jen's shop is packed with beautiful homewear and gifts.
3. The Cooperage
Nestled under a walkway opposite BAWN the Cooperage is a sun trap haven with some independent retailers including Vintage clothing and Record shops.
3. The Wee Beer Shop.
Nestled a few doors down from Bawn is the Wee Beer Shop. Rammed with unusual beers from all over there will be a good selection to choose from.
5. Burnfield Bakery
I am going to go ahead and say that these are the best cakes in Glasgow. Hands down. I like a good cake. There isn't a lot of space to sit in but grab a coffee and a cake and take a wander around Queens Park which is just a 2 minute walk away.
