We visited this quirky little store while exploring Edinburgh recently. It purveys an extremely eclectic array of goods, mainly for females. Costume jewellery abounds and the prices are extremely reasonable. Worth a look.

Really cute store with unique gifts. I purchased two Scottish thistle pendants for gifts and a framed stamp pendant for myself. Woman working there was very friendly and knowledgable. Right off High St. Would highly recommend a visit!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
