  • Jim made my husband and I most welcome on our visit to his store. His knowledge of his subject matter is amazing. Thank you for being so helpful and friendly
  • An amazing shop for keen fossil collectors. Really great prices on everything and Jim is the friendliest guy I've ever met.
  • Im a big fan of minerals, crystals, fossils. This guy seriously knows what he is doing! Its actually so nice in their and they have everything you could imagine. I bought so many things and they are so inexpensive! I bought around 10 items their with my mum for around 17 pounds. In other stores itd be far more expensive I cant stress enough how much you guys should check it out
  • Great range. Excellent owner. Kids love it. Good prices too!
  • Lovely shop and Jim was so friendly and helpful. Made my son's holiday to come away with some really special souvenirs to start his fossil collection.
