I think you may be disappointed with the Barras.

Milngavie also has a boot sale every Sunday morning. The 109 and 119 are among the buses that will get you there. Get off the stop at McDonald's (yes, the burger place) and you're almost there.

Much smaller than others mentioned, but still worth a look-see.

You could make a day of it by heading back to the Burnbrae for a decent Sunday lunch. There are tables outside if the weather is nice.

Without a doubt the Blochairn boot sale - Traders are there from 5am so get there early for the bargains.

Keep your wits about you though - Plenty of unsavoury characters around that will happily relieve you of your handbag without your permission.
