Glasgow is my hometown. I love the places, the spirt and the hard working people. I love shopping as you all know, and my favourite is local businesses. Finnieston has become the new West End of Glasgow, with its upmarket bars and restaurants as well as its funky shops and boutiques. Everyone who comes to Glasgow now knows to visit Finnieston, but one place they might not know about is The Hidden Lane, which launched on Saturday 25th November. The Hidden lane is just a stones throw from Glasgow city centre. You can feel the magic pulsing as you walk down that magical lane. Cobbled streets, pretty little shop openings enticing you in to view their wonders. The most special thing is the shop owners themselves; so friendly, inspiring and knowledgable. So grab your coats and purses because Becca Blogger is taking you shopping.
Bonnie Bling: This place screams Glasgow; unique, quality items any fashion savvy shopper would be proud to own. I love the colours, the Scottish memorabilia. I could spend all my time & money in here. I will be popping back before Christmas to get some of there fab Christmas Baubles for the tree.
Cloud Nine Candles: You all know Becca Blogger loves a good candle & this is my new go to place for the best ones. This shop feels like a warm gentle hug for your soul. Natural light fragrances for every occassion. If you are looking for some stocking fillers, this is the lady you need to visit.
Uptown Squirrel: This lady is an artist. Beautiful design cover notebooks, tote bags and yes, even compact mirrors. I have been using mine like it’s going out of fashion (WHICH IT WON’T) These are real luxury items. (can you find the hidden animals?)
There are so many more amazing shops in The Hidden Lane, which I will link below. When we are finsihed shopping till we have dropped, We popped into the Hidden Lane tearoom for the most heartwarming environment. Afternoon tea is just the ticket after a day wandering around this magical wonderland. I had tea and cakes when I visited and it was divine.
The Hidden Lane is as it sounds, a hidden treasure. With it’s lovely shops, lovely people and great atmosphere, you really need to visit over the festive period. The Hidden Lane is there all year round, but their Hidden Christmas in The Hidden Lane is open throughout December, so get yourself down their to sample its delights.
All my love Becca Blogger x x x
