Portakabin Building 001Portakabin Inside 002







After a couple of weeks of long hours and little sleep we have reopened in our lovely Portakabin building on the upper terrace.

We are now sited next to St John’s church on the Lothian Road side and easily visible from the street. The building that Portakabin UK kindly donated to us is big enough to fit all our stock and is warm and welcoming.

We are very happy in our new home and we hope that you will love it as much as we do.

It’s a dreich November afternoon here in Edinburgh, but the shop is bright and welcoming despite the weather. Our advent candles, both numbered ones and the boxed sets for Advent wreaths, are proving as popular as ever this month. We also have a wide selection of (chocolate free!) Advent Calendars. It’s well worth popping in for a browse…

Cornerstone Panorama





We posted a circular version of this photo on Facebook yesterday but thought this panorama of the shop was too good not to share here too!  If you haven’t visited us before it gives you a good idea of how we fit all the books, cards and gifts under our lovely vaulted ceiling.

Tree Cards, Algan ArtsThe cards which were delivered yesterday are now priced and on display. It’s great to have a full range of Gail Kelly’s tree cards back in stock, and we have some nice new designs to add to our selection of Lesley Hollingworth’s cards too.
