The last weekend of the month sees two of Glasgow’s favourite markets open their doors: Byres Road Makers Market and Granny Would Be Proud.
Byres Road Makers Market is Glasgow’s monthly boutique craft and event, taking place in Hillhead Library on the last Saturday each month. The market embraces the handmade, featuring work from Scottish designers, artists and crafters. You’ll be able to buy anything from upcycled furniture to crochet cacti, and everything in between. It’s perfect for finding unique gifts, and if your sugar levels get low, there are usually treats to be had.
If you can’t make it along this week, the Makers Market recently opened a pop up shop in Ruthven Lane. Run by the lovely Tania and Carolyn, you’ll be able to find many of the wares available at the market, six days a week (closed Mondays).
Visit the Byres Road Makers Market on Saturday 29th October from 11am-4pm in Hillhead library (348 Byres Road). Entry is free.
Granny Would Be Proud has been going strong for over five years, providing an outlet to more than 250 sellers. Get a pair of stylish retro specs, browse the fabulous vintage clothing and go nuts over the selection of jewellery and accessories. If you get tired of from shopping, you can grab a bite to eat in the Bookclub, get a vintage make-over or visit the Polaroid Photobooth.
Visit Granny Would Be Proud on Sunday 30th October in Hillhead Bookclub (17 Vinicombe Street) from 12noon-5pm. Entry is free.
