Weekend Shopping: About Living, Giffnock

Each Friday, I will focus on a great place to visit and shop! Could be Glasgow, Edinburgh - who knows! So this week I visited Retail Industry Award winners 'About Living' in Fenwick Road, Giffnock. Since 2006, this lifestyle brand has been wowing customers all over the glamorous south side of Glasgow and they recently opened a second store the Avenue Shopping centre in Newton Mearns!

About Living, 180 Fenwick Road, Giffnock, Glasgow.

This store is a clever concept for shopping - one half of the store is a stylish department of gifts, toiletries, jewellery, beautiful bags, kids gifts and accessories with the other half of the store a fabulous department for all things kitchen related (this is where you have found me today) It's quite a feast for the eyes!

The store's buyer and director Gary Hogan travels Europe to bring his customers the best design-led collections which include exclusive brands such as Alessi, Emma Bridgewater, Amelie et Melanie, Orla Keily & Abahna. 

And then we have to talk about the cards!!!! I can't forget about them! Swoon! Probably the biggest and best collection I've seen stocked anywhere in a boutique in it's own department - Card and wrap heaven! 

 

My top picks from the kitchen store were:

1. Set of LSA's 4 pastel wine glasses, £30.00

2. Set of three dipping dishes & serve board, £34.99

3. THE cutest doggie mug collection from Leslie Gerry, £9.99 each

To be fair - I had about 10 picks, so many to choose from!
