  • Love poking around - never know what treasures we will find!
  • Arrived into the shop at 5pm, selected several items we wanted to buy along with one item from a locked cabinet. At 5.20 I approached the desk where they were serving the customer in front of me. Once finished, I asked if they could open the cabinet only to be told in a very rude manner that they would not. I explained that we had traveled from Dublin and was told "we open at 9am you should have come sooner shouldn't you'". I clarified what time they closed (5.30pm) and once again was met with very abrupt responses, again accusing us of leaving it to late to make the purchases. There were still other customers in the shop which they were prepared to serve and told the customers ahead of us that they would hold onto their items while they retrieved their car. We didn't expect any special treatment, but presumed that we would be served considering the shop was still open and we had been there quite a while already. Disappointing to see such poor customer service from what originally seemed to be a quaint, local antique shop that catered for all. My experience of the service received was abrupt, rude and uncalled for, and left me wondering why so many good reviews for this store.
  • What an amazing place, full of lovely items small and large. It also has a vintage comic book shop on the top floor. There are small pieces and large pieces of furniture,as well as collectables, old tools , jewellery and much more . If you like second hand vintage items, spend some time here.
  • Good selection of antiques. Worth a visit just to browse
  • Whether your looking for antique items or not it's a great place.
