Armstrong's0.9 miles 64–66 Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9JB
Whether you're a fashion student or just a dedicated follower, a visit to the granddaddy of Edinburgh's vintage stores is essential for anyone with even the slightest interest in clothes. The Grassmarket branch has by far the bigger, more eclectic…
The Record Shak0.9 miles 69 Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9JG
Simple, basic and excellent wee record shop with absolutely no attitude, selling a great selection of blues, rock, folk, reggae and jazz, mostly second hand. Will occasionally buy records too.
Hog's Head Music0.9 miles 62 South Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9PS
Muso paradise indeed. This grungy second-hand store is full of rare CDs and DVDs, collectable box sets and T-shirts. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the windows are crammed with rarities, and there's a great trade-in policy.
The Frayed Hem1.0 miles 45 Cockburn Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1BS
A vintage shop with a well-picked range of clothing, shoes, jewellery and collectables.
Avalanche1.0 miles 5 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2HY
Tiny, near-legendary record shop specialising in new and used indie and alternative vinyl and CDs. An essential part of the Edinburgh muso experience, with a great selection of local acts - Postcard Records, in particular, are brilliantly represented.
Vinyl Villains1.0 miles 5 Elm Row, Edinburgh, EH7 4AA
This dark, brilliant and slightly haphazard collection of second hand vinyl and CDs was recently namechecked in Sunshine on Leith, the Proclaimers musical. Staff are famously unfriendly, but that's all just part of the experience.
Rusty Zip1.1 miles 14 Teviot Place, Edinburgh, EH1 2QZ
The littlest vessel in the Armstrong's armada stocks better quality leather coats than its name might suggest. Smoother-than-thou retro pieces mingle with knick-knacks, including wigs, feather boas and novelty scarves. During August, it's handily…
Barnardos Vintage1.2 miles 116 West Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2HH
Treasure trove charity shop, with the stock hand-picked from Barnardo's general intake by a dedicated team who know the area. It's a skip across the road from Armstrongs, making this area of the Grassmarket something of a vintage bolthole, and although…
Armstrongs1.3 miles 83 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2HJ
There is no better place in Edinburgh to take a walk down fashion's memory lane than WM Armstrong & Son. Established in 1840 and locally known as Armstrong’s, its two branches (the other is at 64 Clerk Street) combine to make a huge emporium of…
Armchair Books1.5 miles 72–74 West Port, Edinburgh, EH1 2LE
Divided over two premises, Armchair Books has been a favourite stop for bibliophiles for more than 15 years. The shop owners say their regulars 'appreciate the way the shop combines an eclectic stock with a sterling regard for the health and safety of…
Edinburgh Books1.5 miles 145–147 West Port, Edinburgh, EH3 9DP
Bewilderingly labyrinthine selection of antiquarian books over two levels. Formerly West Port Books, and now a leading member of the West Port Books collective, Edinburgh Books' staff have a similarly dry sense of humour to their fellow collective…
Herman Brown1.5 miles 151 West Port, Edinburgh, EH3 9DP
Seriously gorgeous selection of top-end vintage accessories and shoes hang alongside a carefully selected, colour-coded range of 1950s-1980s fashions. The very best place to lay hands on retro sunglasses, diamante hat pins and patent stilettos.
Main Point Books1.6 miles 77 Bread Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9AH
Situated between a lap-dancing club and a church, Main Point Books specialise in mind-expanding tracts. Fans of Vonnegut, Brautigan, Dick and Orwell will find plenty of politically-charged sci-fi to keep them happy here, and there's a great section of…
Chic and Unique1.9 miles 8 Deanhaugh Street, Edinburgh, EH4 1LY
Chic and Unique offers a wide selection of wonderful vintage costume jewellery, by famous designers such as Dior and Haskell dating from the 1820s through to the 1980s. Alongside the jewellery is a selection of vintage handbags, perfume bottles and…
