There's something a little special stirring in the Southside.
With fashion up front, an ethical soul and music at its core, this not-for-profit thrift store is causing a shift in Southside shopping.
Newly opened Gladrags sells second hand clothing and bric-a-brac to fund local music charity The Glad Foundation and help divert Glasgow's waste from landfill.
Run by a cooperative of music-loving, environmentally conscious fashionistas, Gladrags is a sister project of thriving coffee house and music venue The Glad Cafe, located right next door.
"Any profit we make from clothes, shoes and bric-a-brac goes right back into the Glad Cafe and Glad Foundation," said Laura Mac, part of the Gladrags team.
"The shop came about as an idea to get money into the Foundation. We wanted a fast way of getting money in, so that we could get it where we wanted it to go.
"At the Foundation we want music to be more accessible to children, but also to adults as well. We run workshops, make private music tuition more affordable for kids - its aim is to bring the community together, but there's a musical theme - that's what's running in the background."
Recycle and Upcycle
The Gladrags team have salvaged what they could from the old cafe that used to occupy the shop space, upcycling old flooring into new signage and old cafe signs into shelving.
This quirky, environmentally friendly recycled setting and rails of vintage clothing sets Gladrags apart from other second-hand shops in the area.
"We have three main aims in the shop: promote recycling and upcycling, divert goods from landfill and provide volunteers with training and skills," said Laura.
"We run on volunteers and we want to give them as much training as possible. If they already have skills in something, like visual merchandising, we'll focus on those."
Gladrags rely entirely on donations from the public when it comes to their stock, and since their soft opening last weekend much of it has been snapped up.
Despite beginning with more than enough to stock on their railings, the popularity of the shop means they are already need plenty more where that came from.
"It's amazing how quickly things fly out of the shop, we need more of these things quickly - we're pushing for donations as much as possible," said Laura.
Due to their aim to divert waste from landfill, the Gladrags team are also interested in throwaway items that can't be resold as clothing.
They take a wide range of donations to resell, from vintage to designer to lower end clothing, and make the best with what they can't sell on.
"Even if people look at their clothes and think, 'oh no, that's junk, no one would want that', we will take it," said Laura.
"Even a bag of rags, we can take those rags to a rag man and make money from them. Nothing goes to waste - give it to us."
"All the items we sell on the shop floor will be good quality, clean and without holes, but we don't care about there being a designer label on them."
For Laura, stressing the not-for-profit status of Gladrags is also important.
As a thrift store working to fund a charity, ensuring they have a constant flow of donations is vital to their success.
"We want people to come in and feel welcome. The whole venture is intrinsically attached to music," said Laura.
"We're not making money. I love the shop, I love fashion, but we're not making money."
"It all goes back into the community. We need people to know that we're not making any money, it all goes to the kids and the foundation, or they might take their donations elsewhere."
With a successful soft launch under their belts and a launch party planned for next month once the final tweaks have been made, Gladrags are also calling for their fans to become part of their branding.
Using the hashtag #gladtags on Instagram, fashion lovers can submit their favourite fashion quote or music lyric to be used within the decor of Gladrags.
The chosen lyrics and quotes will be involved in a graphic installation inside the shop, created by Create Forty Eight Design Studio.
It's just one of the many ideas this quirky thrift shop has up its sleeve for what promises to be an exciting and fashionable future.
"There's a brilliant atmosphere and we've had some great feedback," said Laura.
"It's totally unique and the amount of people who have walked by and seen the place and pop in has been amazing."
