Edinburgh Pen/stationery Shops?



Recommended Posts

I'll be travelling to London and Edinburgh in about a month with my husband, and while I saw this thread on London pen shops (or the lack thereof), I was also wondering if there were any cute little pen/stationery shops to visit in Edinburgh (there's this thread, but it is a bit old, so I'm starting this one). Google says The Pen Shop in Edinburgh is closed, so... any suggestions? I'm not that well to do, so it doesn't have to be high end pens or stationery, but a neat souvenir and/or a nice deal would be great :)

 

I'm also making a stop at the Isle of Skye, but that being a less urban place, I am assuming there wouldn't be a lot of pen/stationery stuff there (maybe antique shops?). If there is, I'd be keen to hear it!

Nevermind me! I'm just an inkling, a mere pigment of your imagination...

Newington Stationers, 29 South Clerk Street is a proper stationery shop with everything - rub-down transfer lettering, fountain pens & some inks, lots of Rhodia pads & notebooks, and some new-old stock stuff.

 

Whenever Ive been in, the owner has been friendly, and occasionally does a discount for more than £20 spend (not sure he always does, might just be if hes in the mood.)

 

If you like Bibimbap, On Bap is also on South Clerk St, and does a really tasty dalsot bibimbap. (I have friends who live just round the corner from there, and my partner helped them have a baby, so were up that way fairly frequently!)

I'll add Newington Stationers to my notes (and the bibimbap place), thank you! :) Hoping I'll spot something that can become a nice souvenir pen or notebook for the trip--not that I'm not likely to buy all manner of other souvenirs, because I'll be a tourist, but useful souvenirs are the best!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
