WHAT DO WE SELL?
Things from a bygone era, nostalgic, happy, lovely stuff!
We're not large, fancy dealers, we like to choose our items carefully and individually because we think it is important to supply the very best quirky, and traditional, items to our customers.
You will discover an emporium of quality and treasure at "Antiques in the Alley"!
Some of our stock collections are seasonal, such as Christmas & Halloween, of course, and you will find a greater variety of vintage gardening items in the spring & autumn. Our retro bar area is open all year round, just busier and more varied at Christmas, and there are lots of other items in store that are not mentioned in detail above! Whenever you visit, you can be assured of a shop packed to the ceiling with treasures and surprises, and price tags to suit every pocket!
Happy shopping @ H & L!
