We were sent the below call for people to sell work at the Shawlands Market. I didn't realise this was run by the same folk who organise the Sloans Market on Saturdays and Sundays in the city centre. In my experience they had quite a different range of products. Last time I wondered down the Shawlands Market it had some odd stalls, one selling art made from clothes pegs, one selling boxer shorts and one which appeared to be selling two umbrellas. I like the idea of it becoming more about bespoke goods and unique items, always seemed a shame that Glasgow doesn't have more markets ie food, clothes etc - they work well in other City's. Even the Barras doesn't really seem to get much promotion or investment.
What have been your experiences at Glasgow markets and what would you like to see at the Shawlands one?
