Another 'bricks and mortar' fabric shop has gone. Remnant Kings was well known in Edinburgh and Glasgow for decades. I bought fabric from their Newington shop as a student in the late 70s, for my first child in the early 80s and more recently enjoyed fabric shopping trips to their offshoot, The Cloth Shop, in Bonnington Road, Edinburgh. They had a good range of dressmaking, quilting and furnishing fabrics, and haberdashery as well. No more!  :(

Always sad when a shop closes as there are now so few. If they were already struggling, maybe Covid-19 pushed them over the edge.
What goes around comes around.

That must be the explanation, I suppose. The shop always seemed busy enough, but who knows what was going on in the background?
It's a shame for the staff.
