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…

Advent Candles


  1. Where is my nearest Cornerstone which has Advent Candles for sale please, I used to go to the ‘Tally Ho’, Finchley Branch, London?

    • Hi Evelyn – Thanks for contacting us. We are an independent bookshop with just the one branch here in Edinburgh. We are happy to post candles to you, however. If you would like to place an order or discuss our range, please email us – or telephone 0131 229 3776. We look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hello,
    I’m in Australia and have a Grandson living in Edinburgh. I would like to send him a Advent Calendar this year and was wondering if I can order one on line and would you post it to him please.

    Also do you have pictures of your Calendars that I could have a look at.

    Thank you for your assistance.


    • Hi Susan,

      We can do that for you, however we don’t have any way for you to se our selection as we don’t use the website as a sales site. I realise that you would probably want to see what you are buying, but if you do want to buy from us please email us on

      Best wishes,
      Cornerstone Bookshop
