If you’re in the area to come to ReMode we’d like to bring to your awareness a few other places you might like too- mostly other shops that might be up your street- and a cool, free, cultural heritage spot!
1. Rainbow Turtle
Another shop with ethical and sustainable products and gifts in Paisley is Rainbow Turtle. We always get our bio-degradable bin bags from here, and incense too. You can fill up your reusable bottles for laundry detergent and soap and things, reducing plastic waste. Stocking lots of crafts from all over the world it’s a wonderful place to find a gift for a loved one too.
7 Gauze St
2. Coffee Shops
If it’s sustenance you’re after and feel like treating yourself, there are lots of nice coffee shops in the area. Sometimes on a Saturday we get a breakfast roll and hot drink. Food Forty Six do the best hot chocolate with a range of dairy free milks to choose from. Roasters do a great egg and tattie scone roll. Nomad (not pictured, but also on High Street) do a great flat white. The coffee shop Brew has been a great help to ReMode in previous years by letting us use their space for workshops before we were based at number 43. The iced coffee there is great.
(Food Forty Six) 46 High St, (Nomad) 63 High St, (Roasters) 69 High Street, (Brew) 3 County Sq
3. Charity Shops
There are so many great charity shops in Paisley with bargains waiting to be found. You can often find exactly what you’re looking for at a far more reasonable price than buying new- and at less cost to the environment. Shelter and British Heart Foundation are always worth popping in to and they’re just over the road from ReMode.
36 High St & 32 High St, and many more locations around town
Antique shop Baileys is a treasure trove of unusual goodies. Retro, vintage and rare items can be found, along with the positively weird and wonderful. There is always a cool assortment of stuff in the window to tantalise the eye and lure you in.
34 High St
5. Sma’ Shott Cottages
Reopening on the 1st of April, a visit to Sma’ Shott Cottages is like taking a step back in time where you can find out about Paisley’s rich textile producing past. Learn how a typical weaving family lived and worked during the 18th century in the weavers cottage, and discover what the ins and outs of a mid 19th century mill would have been like. Free entry, this is a great cultural and historical attraction and place held dearly in ReMode’s hearts.
Sma’ Shot Lane
InCube is a business hub for self-employed people, start-ups and enterprises. Their services are free and include practical advice, ideas, funding, training, local workshops and networking opportunities. They also have a shop in which they sell stock from guest traders.
