Bags of style in our new Glasgow boutique

Byers Road is home to the first Boutique by Shelter Scotland charity shop where gems including a Chloé “Edith” handbag and a Liberty of London silk scarf sit in a sleek and simple interior designed by Red or Dead founder Wayne Hemmingway.

Adam Lang, our Head of Policy and Communications, said:

“People’s generosity in donating and buying from our charity shops allows us to be there to ensure no-one has to face bad housing or homelessness alone. This is an exciting new development and one which we hope brings another way for people to support our work.”

While a brand new bag from Chloé costs over £1000 our Boutique by Shelter Scotland shop is selling the 2006 model “Edith” for £350 including its branded dust bag, a must-have for collectors. The shop also has stock to catch the eye of fashion forward gents with a mint condition Aldo Conti jacket and a beautiful 3 piece Yves Saint Laurent suit.

Also on the rails for ladies are a number of vintage items, including a yellow Weatherwear Glasgow LTD rain coat, a Liberty of London silk scarf, and a stunning Emporio Armani evening dress.

Adam Lang added:

“We helped more than half a million people in Scotland last year with practical advice for people in housing need and a range of campaigns aimed at resolving the housing crisis. 

However, homelessness is far from fixed and we know that more than 5000 children will wake up in temporary accommodation this Christmas because of the shortage of affordable housing. It’s as important as ever to keep the work going until there is a home for everyone so I wish this new shop every success in bringing in much needed funds.”
