What's Shakin' at the Glasgow Jamboree? Part 1

The short answer? Quite a lot.

For a slightly longer and more useful response, do read on...

Ok. So. Obviously, taking centre stage at the Made in the Shade Springtime Jamboree are the 30+ indie designer makers who'll be setting up shop and offering y'all the perfect chance to nab yourselves a fine piece of handmade treasure. We'll be publishing the full vendor line-up in just a sec so get ready to plan that shopping trip and allot that pocket money budget accordingly!

Aswell as bringing the best selection of off-beat craft & design for you to feast your eyes on, we have a whole host of extra fun times in store for you this season :)

First up, we have The MITS Photo Booth.

Brought to Made in the Shade by everyone's favourite professional camera-bot YHF Photo, we'll be giving you a chance to take away a little momento of your day out at Made in the Shade! Step into the photobooth and let Mr YHF work his snappy magic. Your picture will be printed out for you straight away and we'll even arrange for you to receive e-copies of your images later! How swell is that? Grab a prop, grab your friends and pile in for some old-time retro photo booth fun! Photo packages will cost a measly £4 a go!

And that's not all Shaders... Oh no... We're also setting up the Not Now Cato! Vintage Dressing Room especially for you!

Not Now Cato! is the latest addition to Glasgow's cluster of vintage clothing gloryholes. Located on The Upper Floor of De Courcy's Arcade (opposite The Maisonette), this dinky 'lil shop is packed full of 1960s - 1980s gems for gents and ladies - and also carries a whole collection of reproduction/reconstructed retro wear by Pop. Not Now Cato! has recently been featured in the press and media as one of only two stockists of The Retro Guy range - a brand conceived by the timely discovery of a stash of never-worn vintage clothing in a warehouse in the Southside of Glasgow! Owner Alan Brooks brings a selection of Not Now Cato! stock to Made in the Shade in April and will set up the very first Made in the Shade vintage dressing room at The Springtime Jamboree! Manned by our very own stylist and fashionista, customers will be in expert hands as they choose a full outfit from the Not Now Cato! rails. Y'all can handpick individual garments or - you can take advantage of a very special offer of an ENTIRE outfit for just one, easy to understand set price :) Revamp those gladrags why dontcha!

We have more event news for you too. Tomorrow we'll be posting about our all-new, super special public crafting project. We'll need you all to get involved - so please do check back on the site and get ready for crafty action!
