A quick post to alert all the Scottish Bloggers know about an INCREDIBLE vintage pop up shop that is currently open in the Duke Street area of Glasgow. It is so lucky I have been selling a lot of my old clothes on ebay right now as that has given me just enough pennies to spend on the amazing stock they have in and it changes every day!
The lovely ladies behind the Cornershop Glasgow have put together a really fabulous space which is very well laid out, not overwhelming with racks and racks of old clothes but instead carefully picked beautiful items from the likes of Whistles, Topshop, river island, Pringle, coast, Reiss and more for unbelievably reasonable prices. Local east- enders are bringing in their good clothes that just need a new home and because of that there is the perfect mix of sizes and items, there are shoes, handbags household bits and bobs and handcrafted brand new pieces too. It is without a doubt the best vintage shop I have been in to ( and I go into A LOT!) I genuinely can’t stay away as you just don’t know what piece you will find next- and it is open till late every night which makes it even more tempting J you can find out details of all their upcoming events by liking their facebook page.
I Cannot recommend strongly enough that you take a little adventure to the east if you haven’t before, you can get to the shop (314 Duke Street) from Bellgrove train station which is just two stops along from Queen Street Station on the train, or you can walk right along Duke street from George square which will take about twenty minutes. You might as well make an afternoon of it and grab some amazing tea and cakes just along from the shop at Tibos or grab an amazing slap up meal at the renowned Coias while you are at it.
Here is just a few ( ahem! ) of the sneaky purchases I made this week;
|Pringle of Scotland Wool Bomber Jacket|
|Gorgeous vintage Bellino evening dress|
|vintage leather bag|
|wool Whistles Dress|
A couple of other little treats included gold and cream brogues and an amazing oversized vintage lambswool blazer- all for fantastically affordable prices.
Thanks to the lovely Jackie and her team for putting up with my, currently constant, visits- you are doing an amazing job with the place and it is just what our lovely neighbourhood needed.
