Welcome to the miso funky news-spreader Summer edition!
its aim: to provide you with all our news, crafty updates and the world according to Hamish!Hamish says ... it's my birthday!
Summer is well and truly upon us - sunshine, rain, sleet and all! Hamish and co hope that you have been making the most of it as... we all know... it will be over as quick as you say, I want a charcoal-y flavoured sausage!
So what better time to be out and about making the most of the ever-so-slowly-becoming-darker evenings than to craft, think about craft or buy craft!
what are you all about???
In case you missed us - how that is possible I don't know - we are some dedicated gals who love to make things. Everything we make is completely original and has been made with love! We also organise and attend funky craft fairs for fellow funky crafters in and around Glasgow!
Visit the site to find out more about us, the markets and our craft obsessions!
It's that time of year where we say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the one we call Hamish. He and Miso Funky are 1 year old today (10th August)!Follow us, if you will, into the past... Claire and Jo sat at their work desks staring at the accumulating tickets on the helpdesk wondering when their collective craft ticket would be answered. All of a sudden... it was!
Our craft obsessions were christened MISO FUNKY on that rainy day in August and we thank everyone from our mothers, our other halves and pretty much everyone else on earth for making it one big funky reality!
In celebration... Hamish is having a clear out! Check out our Birthday SALE! More items to be added soon but ch-ch-ch-check it out for some summer bargains... push that funky boat OUT my friends.
In other news... our markets have been plodding along nicely! We have suffered a low crowd on account of all the summer festivities and no students kicking around with their loans. Thus, we're really excited about the students coming back!!
Pop along to the next Miso Funky Market on September 9th at Hillhead Library, Byres Road, Glasgow! The doors will be open from 10am til 4pm and you can peruse our fabulous marketeer stalls as well as Miso Funky! Come and get something funky and fabulous! It's free to get in, so no excuses not to come along and have a browse (and a buy)! Get to know some of our regular marketeers and some of our new additions... they won't bite...

We are also taking names for our Christmas Markets which will start around the end of November and into December - as depressing as it is to be talking about Christmas in August, we promise not to say the word again :)
Hamish and co will have a stall at some other fairs in the next coming months so we'll keep you updated on the news page of our movements!
We have been beavering away on our Autumn/Winter collection and so will be introducing some funky necklaces, bracelets, hairbands, bags, baby and knitteds to name a few, over the next month or so. Keep watch on the shop to see what's what in the world of Miso Funky!
the final thought from hamish
Hamish promises he won't eat too much fruit on his birthday night out and offers this advice for you to pass on to your fruit eating friends...
"When you eat too much, your hearing becomes less sharp!"
And he would know! Use it wisely my friends...
Until next time, go forth and funkify your life!
