The EG&R Discounts Guide
To Edinburgh shops
We love all our Edgar society members so much that we have organised discounts to be available to you all. All you have to do is wave your membership card at the necessary shop-type person and smile sweetly.
So who will give us pennies (and hopefully pounds) off?
APPLEJACK, 59-62 South Bridge – 10% discount
This is a relatively new place to pour your money into. Applejack can be found in the basement of the second-hand shop Flip. Aside from a fair selection of tops, t-shirts and other clothing, they also stock a small amount of make up and other accessories and can even put holes in your ears and nose and provide shiney things to put in them.
INUA MYSTIC CANDLES – 59-62 South Bridge – 10% discount
Inua can provide all you need to turn your little Pollock prison-cell into your own Valhalla; or at least a good approximation of a burning longboat when you set fire to your bed clothes with one of their candles. But the smoke will smell nice due to the scented oils you bought at the same time.
TAP – 59-62 South Bridge – 10% disocunt
Again, this stall has a selection of t-shirts and accessories, though they also sell posters, and postcards to send home and tell everyone what a wonderful Fresher’s week you are having.
GROUND CONTROL, 29-33 Cockburn Street - 10% discount
A review of Ground Control and their merchandise is written elsewhere in this guide. In short however Ground Control stocks everything the discerning gothic and/or rocker shopper would be seeking, from make-up to t-shirts to corsets.
JOE COOL, 3Greyfriars Place – 10% discount
Joe Cool is what those in a certain circle would call a "stuff" shop. It holds all manner of things, which if you have many birthdays that you are not allowed to forget and have to buy gifts for (best friend, siblings etc.) definitely look in here before you traverse the length and breadth of Edinburgh seeking the perfect pressie. If after spending all that money on someone else treat yourself as they also do piercings.
SCAYLES – 40-42 West Crosscauseway – 5% off on selected items
Scayles sells everything the discerning wannabe rock god ever wanted to own, including a range of high quality guitars, four tracks, amps, pedals, strings, picks and other consumables. A discount from here includes items such as strings and any other things at the discretion of George the manager (all the more reason to smile sweetly)! Scayles also boasts the cheapest p.a. hire in town.
LEATHER & LACE – 8 Drummond Street – 10% discount
Edinburgh’s most prominent fetish shop Leather & Lace sells everything from lingerie to cat suits and has a range of shoes and stiletto boots which come in men’s sizes too. As the name suggests leather and lace goods are sold here as well as an extensive range of rubber and pvc. To keep those unruly partners in order there’s also a plentiful stock of whips, canes and handcuffs for those cold winter nights.
UNDERGROUND NATION– P.O. Box 12262, Edinburgh. EH4 1YD – 10% discount
This is a small independent business run from Julia’s home selling a high quality range of clothing, jewellery and make-up. Almost any kind of corset can be found here from velvet to sequinned and the amazing range of jewellery has to be seen to be believed. It’s quality not quantity that’s emphasised here which makes for a very practical buy. Anything you want that can’t be found in Julia’s flat probably isn’t worth wanting anyway – contact Julia on (0131) 272 6494.
