made in the shade

A date for your diaries... "Brought to you in association with the CEC and the Glasgow Craft Mafia, the aptly named, ‘Made In The Shade’ market (a slang phrase, popular in the 1950s and synonymous with guaranteed success, or a truly swell situation) launches at The Lighthouse, Mitchell Lane on Saturday 24th May! Bringing the crème of the city’s independent and creative crop together for the first time, the vision of ‘Made In The Shade’ is to showcase young design talent, to encourage customers to relish in the exclusivity of the handmade one-off and to promote the local businesses who are working hard to carve out creative identities amidst a mountain of mass-produced and carbon-negative products. On the day, as you (yes, you!) explore the pick of over forty stallholders selling products crafted with love, you will be treated to the sounds of rock’n’roll rebels, honkytonkers and vintage drag on the decks." Do come along if your Glasgow way, it sounds like a fun day out. I'll be there on my stall too but more about that nearer the time...
