Hi Scott

Unfortunately Edinburgh is not well served with juggling shops. The only one I can think of is Wind Things in the Grassmarket. However these guys specialise in kites and such with juggling equipment a sideline.

I would recommend an online shop like firetoys.co.uk. I also think there is a thread somewhere in here that lists some other recommendations.

i went to wind things yesterday and it was pretty crap for diabolos
so i just ordered some Henrys carbon fibre handsticks and some string of oddballs.co.uk.....

cheers anyway, firetoys.co.uk looks pretty good, will probably get my stuff off there in future....

There is the Edinburgh Club which meets at Tolcross primary school 7-9pm on Mondays.  Joe, myself and about 4 other folk do the diabolo, (varying levels).

Everyone is welcome so come !

and there is also the Edinburgh University club which meets on a Wednesday.

Because as much as I would want to run around yelling "RandomSeaBadger, where are you?" in Fife, I think they would lock me up for it.
