Any cheap web design companies in Glasgow?

Hi there,
I have some furniture stock I want to sell online, I have sold some on ebay but I'd like to have my own website, seems the way to go. I made a few enquiries to various web designers about setting up an ecommerce store but I have been quoted some crazy prices and I can't afford to spend that kind of money on a startup business with just a few items to sell.
Can anyone suggest a reliable web design company in the Glasgow area that won't charge through the roof for what I need which is pretty basic? I know I could use any company in the UK (in the world actually I guess) but I'd rather they were local in case we need to meet up. I prefer the face-to-face approach. Please NO SALES PITCHES from web designers, I'd like advice from someone who has had a website built and can give an HONEST recommendation!
Thanks!!
Alan

P.S. I posted this same question on the UK Business Forum site and as predicted I got flooded with PMs from web design companies. I appreciate people want to offer their services but it's really NOT what I'm looking for: if I want a quote I will contact you. I have had plenty of quotes, what I need is genuine advice from someone who has had an ecommerce site built and can personally recommend a company. Even if you are mates with a web designer, thanks but biassed advice is no good to me.

Thanks for that Frockery, that sounds like good advice.
I've been told Magento is probably best because of scalability (in case my business goes REALLY well!) so I'll look at Clearbluedesigns, although a Glasgow company would be better if at all possible.

Once I find the right people I'll post here again and share my experience...

We have a CMS Builder package which is inherently a fully configured Joomla install and the availability by the client to add components to extend it. In this case I would choose the ecommerce addition as well which would be virtuemart. Ideal for first shop.

The package, although fully supported on our forums and a ticket tool is however a bit of a self help package:
