We spent a grand total of about 20 minutes in Queens Park trying to eat our jam sandwiches before the wind turned to rain and our attempts at shelter turned into a joke.
But in that short time we were able to see that the plants are coming back to life in our local park and the greenery is returning!
In an interview with STV Laura Mac from the Gladrags team said: "Any profit we make from clothes, shoes and bric-a-brac goes right back into the Glad Cafe and Glad Foundation. 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."
It's a pocket sized shop packed with various 'upcycled' fashions and a well stocked bookcase. The layout and design touches are pretty delightful, clearly done with careful aesthetic care. Trade is good - We were only there for a few minutes for a quick look-about but there were at least 7 or 8 people in the shop at that time and it's a small shop!
