We were treated not very friendly because we searched boxes for the right colour for a birthday gift. The lady came over and seemed to panic as if were suspicious. A lovely couple gave us a look as if to say “ Oh dear, who’s rattled her cage.? When we went to purchase, we felt like aliens and she was not very friendly again. After we left, she started checking where the original boxes were on the shelf. My wife and I are both pensioners . We left feeling like criminals.

A lovely shop run by a friendly and very helpful lady. I bought some beautiful, hand-painted ceramic knobs from their surprisingly large selection. And had a nice chat as well. Thank you.
