In yesterday’s post I shared my impressions of Musselburgh and mentioned more shops to come. This block, same side as the dentist, is a mixed bunch. Imperial Barber Shop offering “traditional cuts”, Simply Flowers florist shop, and the fish shop on the corner. The flower shop took centre-stage so let’s take a look inside.

Boat display shelves
Street frontage.. note the sign for the “Little love Chapel”
I was invited to take a look downstairs… it was like going down into a crypt! Narrow stairs led down to a dark basement but when the lights were switched on I found a magical space with colourful displays of home/gift ware and the “Little love Chapel” to the side.

Homeware and gift items in the colourful display area downstairs. This display is opposite the entrance to the chapel.
Wall hanging at the bottom of the staircase.
Far end of the basement, children’s area
Simply Flowers is a real treasure and goes way beyond the average flower shop. Its easy to just unwind here, relax, and enjoy browsing the homeware and gift displays at both levels.
The flower shop and barber shop are side-by-side. I’ll leave you with photos of the flower shop front window, their shared frontage, and a shot of the barber shop itself. The fish shop is another story altogether, it’ll feature in my next post!
