I just had to share this shop with you from my local town, it is just fabulous.
Really tiny in size, every spare inch is covered more than once with so many fascinating things you spend hours looking.
In the winter she has a real coal fire roaring away in the fireplace that you can see.
This is the sort of shop where you can go in, ask for the most obscure thing and she will not only have it but can go straight to it.
You will hopefully be able to see the diversity from stuffed animals and mounted horns, through kitchenalia, pottery, pictures, ornaments, even washboards.
The last time I went in there I came out with a rare selection of old ink bottles, a Cachous tin, Curry paste jar, clotted cream tin, 1 lb weight, spirit measure and a half pint milk measure.
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO VIEW LARGE I'm afraid, just to get a glimpse of the tins and objects used many years ago. I hope it brings back some good memories.
As always thanks for looking and your kind comments.
