    Is it the one beside the fish bait shop that sells car insurance and sewing machines?

    Funny you should say that!

    It's mentioned in Irvine Welsh's alternative Edinburgh Guide as being a weird combo of products for a shop to sell!

    It's not far up from the one that sells flowers and sporting goods. And I'm not kidding

    The guy that owns it Ray and his mrs are a really nice couple. They dont do tellies anymore but have left the sign as it is.

    Re: Does anyone know the name of Darts shop......

    The fishing tackle shop in Haddington Place is/was owned and run by Ernie Foley, a great character, and his wife Angela. For many years they also sold pets, a strange combination. They had a minah bird there for years that swore at everyone who came in. I once asked him why he hadn't sold it, Ernie confessed he loved the animals too much to sell them. Not a sound business strategy, but he was a gem of a guy. Anyone know if he is still around?
