In amongst all the excitement at The Maisonette yesterday, we received a call from our contact at The Lighthouse. We've all been awaiting some news about the future of Scotland's Centre for Architecture, Design and the City since administrators took over the management of the building in August. We are real sad to tell y'all that we've received notification that our Festive Shopping Weekender, scheduled to take place at The Lighthouse in December has been cancelled. The administrators have taken the decision to cancel all events booked after mid-November and a date has been set to officially dissolve The Lighthouse Trust. The building will return to the hands of Glasgow City Council in the coming weeks and months. what happens after that - we have no idea. Let's hope the building is rejuvenated in some way.
We've had a fabulous time working with The Lighthouse and the staff there. The Lighthouse has been integral to the establishment and development of Made In The Shade and we're grateful for all the help and support we've received from 'em over the last two years.
Clare and I will work our socks off to find a new home for our calendar of boutique shopping events in 2010 and in the run up to Christmas you can all rest assured that we will offer tonnes of fantastic indie shopping opportunities through The Maisonette. Let's not think of the event being cancelled, but that we're now able to host a Made In The Shade shopping shindig every single day of the week from now until Christmas Eve! Look out on the blog for more details of our plans.
