And when you find yourself in Edinburgh, do stop by Georgian Antiques, on Pattison Street, in the historic area of Leith, being certain to leave a few hours for leisurely browsing the astonishing five floors and over 50,000 square feet of sheer opulence.

Housed in an old whisky bond [where whisky was stored before shipping], there are rows upon extravagant rows of chandeliers and gilded mirrors, clocks and exquisite trinket boxes, intricate inlaid wood cabinets and fine bone china, bookcases and bureaus and tufted velvet and tartan . . .

On our first visit, [and armed only with our iphones], we were very nearly and wonderfully overwhelmed with the spectacularly extensive collection of Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian pieces, and knew we would be returning again and again . . .

Owners, John & Padraic Dixon, and the staff at Georgian Antiques, could not have been lovelier, lighting chandeliers and serving tea & biscuits while we immersed ourselves in history and beautiful things.

"Georgian Antiques has become a mecca for interior designers, the general public and the trade. This is the place to find anything from a prop for a television commercial to that special item of furniture for the home. Furniture on offer includes bookcases, cabinets, chairs, clocks, desks, mirrors, occasional furniture, paintings, and much more."

. . . and while there are many wonderful recommendations for the city of Edinburgh, Georgian Antiques is most definitely at the top of the list.
