I know, I know... We've been teasing y'all for far too long with dribs and drabs of information about The Made In The Shade Maisonette. We're sorry. The time has arrived for us to reveal all. Wheep!
The Made In The Shade Maisonette is our permanent, dynamic retail, gallery and social space dedicated to showcasing and promoting off-beat design, creativity and vintage lifestyle. The Maisonette, or 'little home', is a friendly hub of activity set in a friendly space in Glasgow's old-time indie shopping institution, De Courcy's Arcade on Cresswell Lane. We'll be opening our doors to customers on Friday 30th October 2009.
Not just a one-stop shop for all things handmade, unusual and beautiful, The Maisonette is also home to the Tiny Gallery AND to a fabulous program of creative and sociable get-togethers. From October 2009, the Made In The Shade gals will continue to conduct their event and agency work in The Maisonette too. We'll have a real-life Made In The Shade home at last!
Although small and dinky, the vintage styled Made In The Shade Maisonette showcases work by directional Scottish designers, makers and artists and introduces the work of creatives from across the UK and beyond. Crossing disciplines, product categories and styles, the Maisonette offers customers the pick of handmade delights and vintage finds.
We are so excited about The Maisonette and we really, really hope you are too.
