Bye Bye Baby! The Summertime Hop - Glasgow

We may be up to our shoulders in paint and plaster while we renovate The Maisonette, but we're still working our socks off behind the scenes to make sure our Summertime Hop event at The Lighthouse in Glasgow on Saturday 21st August goes off with a bang! :)

This year's Summertime Hop event is extra special in that it'll be the last MITS event in our home town for a while - and the last ever we'll be holding at The Lighthouse. We'll be taking a break until Christmas when we'll be introducing you to a whole new world of Made in the Shade! We're arranging an entirely new calendar of events - new venue, new approach. It's time to shake things up! It's Made in the Shade, Jim. But not as we know it.

On 21st August, we'll be setting up shop in the beautiful level 1 exhibition space at The Lighthouse. We can't WAIT! The room is amazing. With huge windows, high ceilings, bare brick walls and lots of cute nooks and crannies for special features, we're sure you'll love the set up!

Over 40 of Scotland's most talented design makers will join us for a whole day of indie shopping and crafty fun. We'll be publishing a full list of vendors shortly. You can plan your attack in advance! :) Aswell as perusing and purchasing a whole bunch of fabulous handmade wares and vintage treats, we invite you to take part in our drop-in Wooden Tree paper mask workshops and to get in touch with your creative side with some public crafting! We are THRILLED to be joined by some very special guests this season. Benefit Cosmetics - that's, BENEFIT Cosmetics, will be offering y'all free make up lessons and helping you out with our make-up woes in the exclusive Made in the Shade Benefit Beauty Parlour AND... Should you feel a little peckish, pick up some cake (I'd go as far as to say this is quite possibly the best cake in town!) from Auntie M - or nibble some super-cutsie handmade sushi from Joanna Susskind's vintage styled sushi stand!

Do come join us, won't you? We'd like to see your wee faces at The Lighthouse just one last time :) Help us make this event one of our best ever. We'd love to pop out on a high! :)

More info and vendor details coming soon!

SAVE THE DATE! Saturday 21st August. 10.30 til 5. The Lighthouse.
