Second-hand shopping in Stockbridge

The cobbled streets of Stockbridge are lined with independent shops selling everything from gramophones to handbags, as well as tempting delis, quirky cafés and a great assortment of charity stores. Although this slightly upmarket neighbourhood is only a 15-minute walk from the centre, it has a laid back village-feel, with a bohemian edge. There’s a wide variety of charity outlets spread along Raeburn Place and St Stephen Street, selling a mix of clothes and household items. There are also a few specialist charity book and music shops worth a serious browse. Real bargains – from designer clothes to unique artefacts – are often found. Every Sunday, there’s also a market offering delicious foods, crafts, vintage clothes and more. or

The other Edinburgh festivals

As the host of one of the most famous festivals in the world, Edinburgh knows how to put on a cracking event. The Edinburgh International Festival, held in August, draws hordes of visitors. But there are also many less well known festivals worth seeking out: Being home to cinemas such as the Cameo and Filmhouse, which show a unique mix of art-house and indie movies, it’s no wonder that the Edinburgh Film Festival in June offers such a brilliant selection of flicks. The Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival in July is the warm-up to the capital’s August festival season. It’s best enjoyed, pint in hand, at an outdoor concert in the Grassmarket on a sunny afternoon. For those who prefer something a little more low key, the beer festival at Scotland’s oldest pub, the Sheep Heid Inn, at Easter, offers 75 types of beer and cider, live music and an award-winning barbie.
