As promised


I said I would go back into the Christmas Shop and find out what they actually sell and how they make their money throughout the year. Not surprisingly, January and February are pretty quiet which allows them to do their stock-taking. After that, the tourist season starts up in earnest and who could resist taking Santa in a kilt playing the bagpipes back to Japan, Australia, the USA or wherever! I'll show you some more of what they sell later, but I was actually in the mood to buy some of it. OK, Jingle Bells in April is just wrong, but it's a shop well worth a visit at any time of the year!

Oh it's so stupid, oh it's so cool, oh it's so stupid... but can I have one?

Thanks Grant for your great Edinburgh pictures, my boyfriend is from there (living 700km away now), and also loves to see his home... Thank you!

All the best from Germany,
MoonSoleil

Did you check what they wear underneath the skirts ;)? That might be another interesting theme for a post since everyone is wondering... :)

They're not skirts!! You know just how to upset a Scotsman! I haven't checked what's under these particular kilts, but you know what they say...

Absolutely agree, they are too much but i really want one!
Do they have a webstore?
(and with all the advertising you do for them you may consider asking for a commission)
