About Us

Glad Rags Thrift is a not for profit cooperative that operates as a preloved thrift store – selling quality clothing, shoes and accessories.

The aims and ethos of Glad Rags thrift focus on the reuse of kindly donated pieces that would otherwise be destined for landfill whilst also providing affordable quality high street and designer clothing to the local community. Glad Rags also provide volunteering and training opportunities across all ages.

All profits are invested into supporting Glad Rags sister enterprise, The Glad Cafe, and ultimately, The Glad Foundation – a charitable body set up to provide affordable and free music lessons and workshops for youngsters in Glasgow’s Southside.

We pride ourselves at Glad Rags on being forward thinking and embracing individuality with fashion, whilst staying true to our social aims.
