About Us
What We Sell
Opening Times

If you like an old-fashioned Aladdin's cave type of shop, this is for you. It's about 10 minutes walk and a world away from Princes Street, tucked into a basement that was an old dairy until the present proprietor moved in, over 40 years ago. The Victorian tiled floors and walls, and marble shelves are still there. 

We stock everything and anything that is old, curious or useful, for as long as it takes for someone to spot an item's potential. As a result, space can be a problem, so nimble browsers are particularly welcome. If you are coming down Dundas Street from Princes Street the shop is half-way down on the right hand side, between Great King Street and Cumberland Street - look out for the white unicorn sign. Dundas Street is worth visiting as there are several other antique shops in the area, as well as a number of art galleries.

This is Finkie, one of our appreciative customers, who decided to try us out for a second home (or was it the lingering smell of long-ago dairy cream?) and laid claim to any piece of cat-sized space that appeared to need colonising.
