Established in 1840 Armstrong’s three shops offer a wide selection of vintage at affordable prices. The largest of their shops is located at the Grassmarket and is the best for the quantity of menswear. Their Clerk Street store is also pretty big, and the smallest shop opposite Edinburgh University offers a 10% discount to students.

Herman Brown began life in 1983 as a collaboration between founder and owner Anna Nicholson and a chap with similar vintage interests (no, not Herman Brown himself). Since then Herman Brown has been the destination of choice for everyone from art students to film stars seeking unique, designer and glamourous garments, jewelry and all that goes with them.
In 2008 Herman Brown spawned capsule collection HB Electronics providing both ladies and gents with delectable and directional clothes, shoes and accessories.
Vintage and new clothing, jewellery, collectibles, art, textiles and furniture from vintage dealers, local independent shops and young designers.
