Sith (shee) is open for business selling gorgeous gifts and little treats!

459 Dumbarton Road, Partick, Glasgow -

We are two women who wanted to set up a unique cafe in Glasgow. Somewhere were you can hang out, knit, surf the web, play chess, chat and buy the odd gift - whilst eating cake.

The cafe is open and so is the shop! We'd love to see you!

One month in...

It's almost a month since we opened. Sorry about the lack of posts - suffice to say we have been a likle bit busy..!

The house is a midden. We get home about 11pm - fall into bed and leave again. The dogs are starting to tidy up for us.

But - it has all been worth it! We are starting to get returning customers, the graph is moving in the right direction, the coffee machine works, and today - WE GOT OUR BUILDING WORKS SIGNED OFF BY THE COUNCIL! Woohooo!

Now all we have to do is satisfy environmental health - which we are doing - and we will be all signed off!

In the meantime, we are promoting like nothing on earth... We had our first Saturday evening do the night of Pride - which went down a storm. Thanks to all the attendees - and the open mic-ers (despite the lack of mic!) - Jakey T, Maria, Gavin, Irene, Nathan, Catherine - you rock!

Now we have lauched our first line-up of evening and afternoon events - check them out on the website -, the network - - or on our new Facebook group! The events include - Gaelic conversation, Knitting, a Book group, The Saturday Ceilidh and a sunday afternoon Games slot.

This journey just keeps on going! Everytime we open we learn something new. I am becoming pretty adept at working between offices, and I have a very understanding boss. (Thanks!)

Thanks too to all our friends for your support and help and willing-ness to come and drink smoothies and eat cake (as well as paint, plaster and plumb...etc...) Nice one!

Okay, off to do some washing up (and/or my paid job ;-)

Look forward to seeing you here sometime
