Was expecting to see some amazing artwork but I have seen better artwork in a car boot sale! Absolute joke! Staff are rude, arrogant and a little bit wierd! My daughter was quite scared! Stay well away people!

I used to sell my art through this shop but removed my work when they kept refusing to pay me for work sold. Other people have had similar experiences. If you are an artist, please, avoid this place, they are not honest people!
