Branches in the Grassmarket, Clerk Street, and Teviot Place (under the name Rusty Zip). Vintage clothing and interesting finds. Prepare to lose hours, especially in the Grassmarket branch!

A cavernous vintage full of rare gems. And kilts. Lots of kilts.

For vintage clothes Edinburgh is a gem of a city, close to us is the famous W. Armstrong & Son established in 1840 (Grassmarket) and the wonderful and unique Herman Brown (at West Port just 5 mins walk from Grassmarket)

Choc full of retro and vintage wear, you can pick up a cool hat or a pair of used Levi's, often for a really good price
