Shops at Stockbridge
Edinburgh Evening News reported, in October 2010, that two local shop
owners had come up with the idea of displaying a collection of 5ft tall
model giraffes in shops at Stockbridge.
This should draw attention to the many independent shops that can still be
found in Stockbridge. It is expected that over 40 shop owners will
each adopt a giraffe.
giraffes have been purchased in bulk by the event's organizers and sold on
to the shop owners at cost - £80 each. Once they have been
individually decorated, they will go on display in the shop windows, from
November 11, 2011.
end of the event, the giraffes will be sold in an auction to raise money
for two charities, Children 1st and Stockbridge House.
