Festive Pop Up Shop

Monday, 28 October 2013

I’m starting to think ahead for Christmas. I know! It is still October (only just though) but thoughtful Christmas shopping takes time. For the last few years I have avoided the high street while doing my shopping and have sourced thoughtful gifts for my family and friends from either local or small independent businesses.

Cushion & Cake sells items from a number of Scottish designer/makers but this year a friend, Jo Gurney (of Mimi & Will and Glasgow Craft Mafia) and I decided to use the space at Cushion & Cake to host a festive shopping event. We have planned to open up C&C tearoom and our new craft & event space across the road as a pop up shop. We are inviting some of Glasgow’s (and beyond) finest designer makers to take a table in our pop up shop and sell their work.

Thank you to everyone who has applied for a space at our event. Applications are now no longer being taken. If you have applied, we will be contacting you very soon.

Christmas Country Living Fair Glasgow 21-24th November

Tuesday, 15 October 2013

I’m excited! Halloween hasn’t even been yet but I’m planning my annual Christmas rituals which involves a trip to the Country Living Fair at the SECC in Glasgow.

Some friends of Cushion & Cake are exhibiting this year so I’ll be going along to support them and do some Christmas shopping. I’ll be ensuring most of my Christmas shopping this year is made with independent designers/makers. Will you?


October Week Kids Craft Session

Tuesday, 1 October 2013

Are you stuck for ideas on what to do with the little ones this October week?

At Cushion & Cake we are running a very exciting “alginate” craft class for children and their chosen adult. Alginate is a natural and totally safe material used by dentists to create impressions of people’s mouths. We are going to use it to create a life size cast of your child’s hand!

Sessions are £20 per child with their chosen adult and £5 for each additional child. Tea, juice and treats will be provided for both child and adult.
