At the beginning of 2010, we knew Glasgow had space for a design-led lifestyle boutique as many high profile designers and brands of the moment were not represented anywhere in Scotland.
When we were shown a characterful standalone building in Glasgow's southside, we knew we could work some magic with the very dishevelled former vintage shop. Choosing Shawlands was an easy decision; we join an increasing number of independent shops and cafes within strolling distance of Queens Park, with parking right outside our door (the same can't be easily said of the city centre or west end) and we've already got some of the most supportive and enthusiastic local customers we could have hoped for.
We didn't think it would take the best part of a year to turn the ramshackle former coach house into the sweet smelling, custom designed haven which opened its doors only three weeks before Christmas, but happily, when the walls were fixed, the ceiling removed and floor replaced we could move in our cabinets and bookcases, display our wares and we're satisfied with the final results.
We are thrilled to bring some of the most press-worthy designers from a selection of genres for men, women, children and the home to a discerning Glasgow audience...we plan on the shop being an evolving retail space where nothing gets too stagnant and new finds added continually.
