Some great vintage stuff in here. You can get lost in the place as it's 3 floors of quirky wonder. One of the must-go-to places in Manchester.

So much to look at and if like me you are of senior years then you will find lots to jog your memories of times gone by, fashion, jewellery, house hold items, posters, military and that little thing you wont find anywhere else.

Although most of the shop lots aren’t filled up yet, it’s safe to say there are over 39 active sellers. Best place to get hipster / relics / creative / weird stuffs. Highly recommended. There’s also an awesome pie shop opposite. VIPie.

A really different take on a shopping centre, with small shops in stalls on several different floors. Really cool stores as well, plus we got henna tattoos here which was fairly priced and really good quality!

Hi, Large multi storey car park right opposite. Plenty of parking in the general area, but the main NCP type car parks are expensive

They do not have an online price list unfortunately. But if you let me know what piercings that you would like prices for I will find out and let you know. Thanks
