4.  End of Summer Sales in Ruthven Mews Arcade, Dowanside and Cresswell Lanes and Byres Road.
It's that time of year when we say Bye to the sun (wot sun?) and cocktails and Hello to hot chocolate, knitwear and......more rain!!
On a positive note, this does mean lots of great bargains from local shops.
Byres Rd and the Lanes are chockablock with end of season deals including trinkets from Majic and beautiful handmade items from Janet and John
Dare we mention the X word?? Perfect opportunity to stock up on stocking fillers
