rainy days and sundays always make me....

A rainy Sunday afternoon in Glasgow is best spent shopping. Especially if it involves vintage and craft browsing (and buying of course) at a newSunday market called 'Granny Would be Proud'. Making its debut at the Argyll Hotel, Sauchiehall Street (across from Kelvingrove Art Galleries) we battled the rain (which appeared to be pouring sideyways and upwards, for anyone who got caught in it) and made our way into a little warm basement of shopping delights. We squealed, split up and started rummaging.

Vintage clothes & accessories, gorgeous jewellery, super knick knacks and lots of yummy cakes were a go-go and lots of bargains were to be had. I purchased a short vintage silk black and gold sequin jacket with major shoulder pad action - very Joan Collins in her Dynasty years (actually it's just very Joan Collins in any year) - and then got out of there fast before anything else caught my eye. The rain had stopped, the sun was out and everything was as it should be.

Apparently there will be a 'Granny Would be Proud' vintage and craft market on the last Sunday of every month at the Argyll Hotel. (973 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow).

  1. I spent a good hour floating about in my new jaques vert shirt; which gladly matches my new wall colour (I'm like Genvieve from Umbrellas of Cherbourg, except less delicate, and more Glasgwegian). The new one-in-one-out policy sadly didn't take hold, more a case of two-in-none-out.

    Here's a thought - shall I just sleep on your couch from now on and we can use my entire flat as storage space? Think of all the shopping... roll on next month!
