SuperMarket is run by Kelly Conway. Kelly moved to Glasgow in 2016 after falling in love with the city after a short visit. She first lived in the Barras Market area and has since moved to the West End of the city with her partner Ralph and Boe the beagle.
'I started my market life with a Vintage & Flea market in the Barras, Glasgow - My idea behind the creation of the market was really a formation of 2 ideas, the first being creating an event which helps younger people to get into Antiques, Vintage & Second Hand items.
I myself have been involved in Antiques since I was a child, 4 generations of my family having been involved in the trade and I found myself to be one of the very few young people involved in the trade and I really wanted to change this and also the attitude to the industry as a whole.
The second reason behind the formation of the Glasgow Vintage & Flea Market was my passion for social history, and more specifically the history of The Barras Markets and markets as a whole. The Barras market has such a rich history and many people in Glasgow remember it as the place to be on the weekends for shopping, with the emergence of high street shops and shopping online and the general disrepair in the area meant that this rich history began to dwindle and sole traders suffered as a result.The market celebrates the pleasure of buying from a passionate stallholder, someone who loves their craft, finding a unique item and learning about its history. The market also bought a whole new audience to the Calton & Barras area with nearly 2000 people through the doors on the first day. The community in Calton have been such a source of help and support for my market and myself.
My next project was Super Market Glasgow - a way to mix up the very best in vintage & antiques sellers with the most amazing small creative businesses. Again Super Market was a run away success with nearly 10,000 visitors over christmas 2018, almost £50,000 in sales in our final weekend in 2019 and with each market it is going strength to strength.
Not only is the market giving outlets for income for sole traders in the area, becoming one of the most successful small business incubators in the city it is also encouraging people to become involved in and explore the community. The market creates income for small businesses, attracts new visitors to Glasgow and provides an event locals can be proud to be a part of.
