Earlier in the week I went a wandering (in my newly purchased green skirt - love) & headed to the Glasgow Vintage Company on Great Western Rd. (It's sister shop Watermelon is just a little further up the road.) It is a treasure of trove of vintage furs, dresses, boots & bangles. I always find good quality pieces at decent prices. The shop is a visual delight with dresses hanging from the ceiling, boots waiting upright for a new home & gold accessories gleaming from every surface. The store is set over two floors, with menswear downstairs (I always like to have a wonder down because they have the good hats & over night bags!)
I was very well behaved on this occasion & left with a backpack & leather purse (I might have to go back for some winter jumpers that I spied). I will feature my purchases in a later post but wanted to give you a feel for the atmosphere of the store. As much as I love a good treasure hunt for vintage pieces, there is something great about going into a store where you can tell they love what they do & put time into how items are displayed. Any tips for favourite vintage haunts?
