Back again!

Hello all,

it has been some time since I have been able to give our blog my attention, due to the fact that I have been taking a step back from business and looking after my two lovely Grand Kids, both girls have been taking up more of my time as it should be and the shop is in capable hands of there mother who manages the shop.

We had a visit from a special ship yesterday as the Queen Victoria was visiting Edinburgh and as with most of the cruise ships that visit she had to park in the River Forth just off South Queensferry and unload her passengers in boats.

Cunard liner Queen Victoria, visiting South Queensferry.
As this one is such a large ship you can imagine the town was pretty busy, so to all the visitors who came into the Niche Gallery a big thank you.

This photo gives some idea of the size of the Queen Victoria on her visit to Edinburgh yesterday, she was on a cruise to celebrate the Cunard Lines 170 th birthday, my thanks to Scott Kemp for the photo's. (I have some more which will be posted as soon as I get them onto the P.C.)

We are lucky as we get around 15 cruise ships per year call in and this number is growing due to the fact that Edinburgh and it’s surrounds are such a wonderful place to visit, the spin off’s from this are obvious and a help to all the small businesses in what is really tough times what with the mess the banks and governments have got us all into at no fault of their own of course.

We have been stocking up with lots of good new quality goods of course and as they go onto our website we shall feature some of them on the blog (time permitting of course)

Well thanks to all still following and hello to new readers and hope to see you all back here soon or if as always you are lucky enough to visit the area pop in and see us.

From the staff at Niche Gallery we thank you for your time.
