The Barras in the east end of Glasgow!  Open every weekend from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm You can find the most interesting things if you go searching.   it's like flea market.  I came across a set of vintage brass bells in the shape of Victorian ladies that were exactly the same as a set my Mum has.  She displayed them on the mantelpiece in our Glasgow home.  You can also barter with the vendors, it's great fun.
