Shelter Scotland’s Stockbridge shop January spectacular returns for 2024

Posted 03 Jan 2024

Shelter Scotland’s much loved January Stockbridge new year launch event returns for its 21st year on Wednesday 3rd January 2024.

Running since 2003, the event attracts excited shoppers from across Edinburgh and beyond. 

Every year, staff and volunteers at the Stockbridge shop offer up a huge range of some of the most exciting and intriguing items donated over the course of the year. 

With a scintillating selection on offer, this year’s extravaganza is sure to create a real buzz among the Capital’s collectors, connoisseurs, and fashionistas. 

Bookworms can grab a signed first edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets or a first edition of HG Wells iconic The War of the Worlds. 

The designer brands on offer include Armani, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren. 

For homeware enthusiasts there are beautiful vintage coffee sets tea-sets, and Portmerion China.

All that in addition to a range of records, pop-culture collectables, board games, jewellery, art, and more.

Director, Alison Watson, said: 

“For more than two decades now the Shelter Scotland’s January Stockbridge launch event has been marked in the calendars of Edinburgh’s discerning shoppers. 

“Scotland is in a housing emergency: there are more than 9,500 children in Scotland with nowhere to call home, more and more people are becoming homeless, while the housing budget has just been slashed.

“Your support keeps us in the fight against homelessness, so ahead of this exciting event I’d like to thank all our customers and donors for their generosity.”

Stockbridge Shop Manager, Peter Jew, added:

“I can’t wait to welcome all our customers to what is at this point an almost legendary event in Edinburgh.

“This is a chance to showcase and celebrate our donations and we’re immensely grateful to everyone who contributed. 

“This year we have a truly magnificent selection on offer, this is a great opportunity to grab something special while supporting Shelter Scotland in the fight against the Housing Emergency.”
