Last weekend, the Made In The Shade gals set up a little impromptu indie shopping space at musical extravaganza Duckstock in Glasgow's homeliest alt. venue, The Flying Duck.
We had a swell ol' time. 'Twas a real joy to work in such a quirky space. It took a lot for us not to make attempts at stealing furniture and fixtures!
We were joined by a handful of smiley Made In The Shaders; Snap Dragon Jane, Hungry Designs, Lost In The Forest, YHF Photo, Gillian Hayes Photography, Wooden Tree, Cotton Candy Corsage, *pipless jam, Lemonart, Jennifer Nicolson, Clare Nicolson and Covetables. It was a real joy to have such a fabulous troupe of vendors take part in the event and it sure was lovely to meet some new people. Good old Twitter :o)
Clare and I had a rerr terr playing some tenuously 'Woodstock' themed tunes in the dj booth and it was just great to get the chance to hear a tonne of our favourite Glasgow acts perform all in one space. Haight Ashbury, The Low Miffs, John B McKenna and Heads on Sticks were just some of the highlights. Look 'em up.
Thanks to Del at The Flying Duck for inviting us to be involved. Thanks to Barney and all the other Flying Duck staff for ensuring the day ran like clockwork and thanks too to all the customers and festival goers who came to check out the array of wonderful handmade and vintage products on offer!
We plan to return to The Flying Duck for more musical shopping fun. More news as it comes!
