Secret Edinburgh : Alternative clothing, corsets and wizards with Andrew O'Neill

Printer-friendly version

SSP goes a little goth this afternoon as we delve into Edinburgh's alternative clothing shops, wizard-like people and proprietors who dress like pirates with Andrew O'Neill.

All of my favourite places in Edinburgh seem to disappear. There was Flip - one of those alternative clothing shops that every city in Britain has, where I'd buy at least one t-shirt every year until it closed.
That honour has now shifted to Electric Cabaret, the goth / alternative shop on Forrest Road. They sell the wonderful vegan Iron Fist shoes, lots of black clothes with buckles and straps and bells and whistles on, to suit the 14 year old goth in your family.
They also have a brilliant range of t-shirts and stripy things and some great corsets. And the proprietor dresses like a pirate 24/7. He is a complete dude. Next door is the Creepy Wee Shop In The Graveyard, in Greyfriars Graveyard. They sell a wicked collection of skellington-based tat, although it seems to be closed more often that it's open.
Jordan Valley on Nicholson Street sells wonderful vegan food and the guy who runs it will usually get you to try some spicy paste he's made which will be delicious. I think he might be a wizard, too.
Andrew O'Neill is appearing in his show: Andrew O'Neill Is Easily Distracted at the Pleasance Courtyard at 10:45pm from Friday 3rd August to Monday 27th, for full details see his Fringe 2012 listing here.
