Strange to believe that this store was recommended by a youngster. We had to stop with only minutes before the store closing time. Lots to see and buy and well priced. Bought a fairly large ornament although this would pose a small packing problem with fly with. The stuff bubble wrapped the ornaments well. Definitely worth the recommendation

Decorative items, old furniture, knobs and handles, clothes, scarfs, jewellery, toys etc. I bought a beautiful yellow cream 6 seater tablecloth and decorative knobs for very affordable price.

The variety of goods for sale is extensive and there are some good bargain buys among all the merchandise, but one b=needs to be careful. Not all is local, and some imported from the East, and some very poor quality. But a discerning browser would enjoy spending some time here and pick up a bargain or two.
