Vintage, craft, jewellery, trinket, clothing, cupcake, pretty, lovely, marvellous things heaven.
That is how I would describe the utterly fabulous Little Bird Market at Sloan’s bar off Argyle Street (108 Argyle to be exact).
I am literally like a kid in a sweet shop – well actually more like a kid in a cake shop because adding to the wonder is Mrs Sloan’s Cake Salon offering the most divine afternoon teas – dainty finger sandwiches, homemade scones and cakes served on beautiful china.
A treasure trove of local talent
Vintage and handmade clothes, jewellery, bags, accessories, cupcakes, stationery, cards, skincare, homeware and more. This treasure trove shows off the talents of local artists and specialises in the kinds of gifts that make people squeal with delight. Even better, it won’t make you shriek with pain because these treasures won’t break the bank.
My only warning is that if you’re trying to buy for others – just accept that you can’t help but treat yourself. It’s simply too good not to. And at these prices why not. Less than £ 20 later and I’m the jubilant owner of two fantastic rings (from the delightfully named hand over your fairy cakes), one vintage pearl and metallic broach (from love me again) and a vibrant, hand-crafted flower hair clip (from frayed at the edges).
Get yourself to the next event in November – or regret not going!
So if you haven’t been to the Little Bird Market, go – or regret it forever! And if you’ve already been, go again and spread the word. I’ll certainly go back.
The next event is happening on Sunday, 13 Nov noon – 5pm at Sloan’s Bar (1st and 2nd floor) with another two events happening in December on the 4th and 11th, perfect for finishing up Christmas shopping or getting a little something special for yourself!
