The Spider & the Fly is a pop-up shop in Edinburgh. It’s located at 65 Bread Street and is currently operating on a month-to-month basis, so get down there quick before you find it’s suddenly disappeared.
Last month the Cut-Click Mail Art exhibition which I am a part of was on display there. They now have some lovely Alice-inspired work on display and for sale, and will be changing the exhibition again soon. Follow @thespiderandfly on Twitter to be kept up-to-date with exhibition news.
The Spider & the Fly proprietor, Emily (Magpie Market), could not be more charming and helpful. You must check out the shop. She is stocking some amazing work from artists, illustrators and crafters, and has combined a delicately twee yet spit’n'sawdust style with the stripped bare boards and paint splattered stone floors and tasteful Victoriana wallpaper to create a temporary wonderland in an interesting secondary retail location.
