Media Release: Santas’ search for original gifts leads straight to Merchant Square


SANTAS searching desperately for an extra special gift for loved ones, friends or relatives this Christmas should head straight to the Merchant Square Christmas Craft & Design Fairs.

Located on Candleriggs at the heart of the historic Merchant City, Glasgow’s cultural, fashion and food quarter, the Merchant Square Christmas Craft & Design Fairs specialise in hand-crafted items that simply cannot be found anywhere else.

Rather than mass manufactured products, Merchant Square Christmas Craft & Design Fairs revel in one-off, specially made pieces and quality products that simply cannot be found anywhere else, including: cards; jewellery; paintings; aromatherapy products; home-made jams and chutneys; photography and fashion accessories.

Jenni Morrison of Merchant Square, said: “If you’re seeking the perfect Christmas gift for your nearest and dearest – but you’re still at a loss about what to get – then it’s time to come round to the Square!

“And in between browsing a broad selection of arts and crafts, you can relax in our enticing selection of restaurants and cafes, all set within a covered and heated Victorian courtyard – so it doesn’t matter how cold or wet it is outside!”

Merchant Square Christmas Craft & Design Fairs are on every Saturday from11am till 6pm and Sunday 12 noon till 6pm throughout December and every day from Monday 19th  December from 12 noon till 7pm to Saturday 24th December from 12 noon till 5pm – so you can squeeze in some last minute Christmas shopping for that extra special gift on Christmas Eve!

Once part of the old Glasgow Fruit Market, Merchant Square is imbued with the history of the area’s dominating Victorian architecture, although today this sense of history blends seamlessly with the distinctly cosmopolitan ambiance that pervades the surrounding cobbled streets that bring the outside in.
