I have taken the decision to close the shop. Both my wife and myself have chronic health conditions and thus need to shield ourselves for present which rules out opening to the public. Given that no one has any idea how long this state of affairs might continue it seems absurd to continue indefinitely in a state of limbo.
I will not be placing any new orders with suppliers and once existing stocks are exhausted they will be deleted from the website.
The shop will not be open BUT items marked as COLLECTION ONLY which cannot be posted can be collected, contact free, by arrangement.
I have much secondhand (and a few bits of new stock that never made it to the website) that will be listed over the next couple of months. New listings can be found here: New arrivals
I also have some display cabinets and shop fittings to dispose of.
My thanks and good wishes to all of you who have brought joy to the shop over the years – some when you arrived and others when you left!
