About The Trumpet Shop
The Trumpet Shop proudly began life as a pop up on George St in Edinburgh from June 2017 through to December 2017. Inspired by the sound of the jazz era of the 1920's and 1930s, I put together a selection of vintage themed ideas which just seemed to work well together, under the banner of "The Trumpet Shop" name.
From a wall of vintage prints, a premium Scottish gin selection, to locally made chocolates, there was something hopefully that little bit different about the shopping experience at The Trumpet Shop.
Since Spring 2018, The Trumpet Shop has moved solely online with rolling collections of vintage prints from throughout the 20th Century.
"We don't sell trumpets..."
The tag line of "We don't sell trumpets" came courtesy of an early American visitor to the shop. Clearly ruffled by the Scottish "Summer" weather, the gentleman in question arrived upon The Trumpet Shop in his quest to fulfil an urgent "need" for a saxophone that very evening.
The only words of wisdom we could offer to our increasingly agitated, trans-Atlantic visitor to help him understand were "We don't sell trumpets..." - which has made me smile ever since!
Thanks so much for taking the time to browse the latest collections, I hope you enjoy your visit.
