As seen on page 23 of the Glasgow Herald on Monday the 23rd of November 2010 Sally Millar age 46 has successfully completed her first year in the retail trade with the opening of “Lady Drawers” in February 2010.
Sally has found this first year to have been very daunting at times due to ever increasing price increases and the lack of public spending. However she has also said that there has never been a dull moment and keeping myself positive, even at the hardest times, is the way I have managed to cope.
“Lady Drawers” sits off the beaten track at 66 Nithsdale Road, Strathbungo, Glasgow, G41 2EN next door to the ever popular new bistro “Cooky”. We sell a range of Bohemia style ladies clothing, hand made clothing, vintage clothing and a beautiful range of jewellery, bags, scarves, cards for all occasions and much more hand made by local Artisans of the South Side Of Glasgow.
We have built up many regular customers within our first year and thanks to them and the local people of Strathbungo we have scraped through. My experience has also now shown me that my idea of “Lady Drawers” being a show case for local artisans of the South Side of Glasgow has proven to be a great success for most of them and this is my proudest achievment so far that and perhaps the fact that we have survived through some very tough months.
We are celebrating “Lady Drawers” birthday on Thursday the 17th of February where we will provide some vino, a chance to meet the Artisans in person and some great wee discounts.
I will also like to thank everyone, including are modestly talented Artisans, for all your help and support in getting “Lady Drawers” to her first, and hopefully many more, birthday party.
