Byres Road. I have the fondest memories of being so excited to look around all the unique shops it had to offer. Now, inbetween the Estate Agents and boarded up shop fronts, it’s such a shame that it is visibly loosing that indie high street tag line. With so many shops lying there useless, two working mums and buiness women are doing there bit to help bring back what the street once had – just in time for Christmas! Westenders, say hello to your new neighbours Think Boutique and Rapu Nui Gallery.

They have clubbed together on a few occasions to bring back Byres Road to its indie shopping glory – but with their own flair of course! Not just your average Christmas shop, the boutique will be home to design led sustainable goods, which range from fair trade homeware and gifts to fashion and textiles derived from organic cotton. at reasonable prices – perfect for gifting someone special with something special.

Launching on Thursday the 21st of November until 21st of December at 112 Byres Road (just passed Tinderbox) the Popup will not just be home to beautiful products to buy but fun things to do and watch as well! The ladies have created a fun programme of in house fashion and art events suitable for the whole family! Expect everything from live store mannequins to community based art project for the wee yins. I’ll be looking forward to my jaunt down for a leisurely browse pre coffee with friends – just the way a trip to Byres Road should be, there’s nothing Betty loves more than an indie store!
