What a wonderful place. Even if antiques are not your thing it will have something to interest and amaze you. From Grandfather clocks, chaise lounges , tables, chairs everything even saw Elvis in there somewhere. Excellent, could have spent even more hours in there.

Echoing off another review, this really is half shop, half museum. You can easily lose an entire day in here, looking through everything there is on offer, from all decades, from all parts of the world. It's surprising how much there is compacted across two...More
