    You'll be lucky!! The rates have forced the people out. John Lewis has a section and so does Jenners, they are both on princes st, well John Lewis is at the end in a shopping centre.
    My mother in law mentioned a new bead shop that opened but it is not in the centre of town. Would you have transport or be using the buses. If you are interested send me a private message and I will phone mother-inlaw and ask exactly where it is.

      Sorry your in for a big dizzy !!! For such a large city it has real lack of craft shops.However I am not a beader so I have just Googled these for you. The first two are near the city centre and Bruntsfield Rd isn't that far out.

        the bead shop in stockbridge is alright, I went a few weeks ago and spent a fortune on things I didn't need (I hadn't been to an actual bead shop for months and got carried away with all the sparkley bits I could pick up and not put down).

        The charity shops in Stockbridge are also pretty good. (and the cheese shop IJ Mellis, off topic, but their cheese is fab! )

        Helios fountain is pretty expensive too, I haven't been but someone bought me some beads from there.

        I would have a look on the north bridge/ south bridge street section of the city - just off the royal mile, there are loads of ethnic shops (and one or two fabric shops I think), I bought a lot of made up jewellery in one really big indian shop and they worked out alot cheaper than the shops were selling the individual beads.

        The problem with big city's is knowing where to look, two and a half years in Glasgow and I don't seem to have found anything, five weeks walking the streets in edinburgh (unemployed) and I found loads of shops
