REVIEW: Willow Trading, Glasgow
Willow Trading, in Glasgow's lovely west end, is the sort of shop that you walk in and wish that someone would give you a very generous voucher for. Part treatment (massage, flotation, reiki etc), part yummy organic/natural beauty shop, it's a place you could spend hours in. And lots of pounds in.
It can be hard to keep track of which shop stocks which brand of organic toiletries (something I hope to try and solve for Edinburgh at least, over the next few months), but Willow Trading stocks a wide range. Green People, Neal's Yard and Living Nature to name a few. Also good to see a range of make-up, green/natural/organic make-up (Bare Escentuals, can't find a website for them I'm afraid!) can be hard to find, and I'm still trying to find some that's affordable that I can buy in a shop rather than online, some things need to be tried!
Willow Trading also have a great baby range, stocking cloth nappies, baby toiletries and some really cute baby hats made out of organic cotton. At only £3.99, they're a real steal.
I highly recommend a trip to Glasgow, and a shopping session around the west end is always fun, especially if you are going to combine maxing the credit card at Willow Trading with a delicious meal at Grass Roots afterwards (more on the Grass Roots shop another day).
