Praise

Shop like a local the next time you’re in Scotland.Three things to know about June Skinner Sawyer’s new book, The Civilized Shopper’s Guide to Edinburgh and Glasgow: 1) It sorts out the good vintage spots from the bad, so you won’t have to wade through piles of stinky XXL T-shirts. 2) It lists loads of respectable whiskey joints in the two Scottish cities, so you won’t feel like a lush for downing a glass (or two…). 3) It’s small enough to fit in you bag, so you can wander the cobblestone streets and play it off like you’re a local, rather than a confused tourist." –Nylon magazine

"Scotland is the place to buy tweed and single-malt scotch, of course, but there are plenty of hip new places to satisfy the covetous and unrepentant shopper. "The Civilized Shopper’s Guide to Edinburgh and Glasgow" shows just how cosmopolitan these two cities have become…Photographs by Alex Hewitt and Susie Lowe convey the warmth and charm of a cashmere weave or a pile of bread at the Farmer’s Market on Castle Terrace in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. The shops are organized into suggested walking tours where the reader also will find suggestions for pubs and restaurants." --Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

"The Civilized Shopper’s Guide to Edinburgh and Glasgow takes you to those independent stores–the quirkiest, the best, the most memorable shopping experiences Edinburgh and Glasgow have to offer." –Scottish Life
