"In preparation of the opening of Glad Rags Thrift Shop, we have teamed up with Refashion Glasgow to bring a free fashion swap and ethical pop-up shop to The Glad Cafe, Glasgow. A chance to not only invest in ethical / sustainable clothing and shopping practices, but also an opportunity to get a whole new festive wardrobe without breaking the bank!"

"A thrift shop opening up on Glasgow’s Pollokshaws Road very soon, right next door to The Glad Cafe. Our aims are to divert your pre-loved clothes and goods from going to landfill (yay for recycling and up-cycling!), provide volunteering and employment opportunities in the community and, since we are a not-for-profit co-operative, all profits raised from the shop will be used to support the Glad Foundation and the programme of the social enterprise, The Glad Cafe.
The Glad Foundation provides affordable or free music workshops and lessons for people in the local area. For more info on the Glad Foundation, see www.thegladfoundation.co.uk"
