I'm very happy that you enjoyed the shop so much and I hope we can continue to surprise you in future with plenty more gems.
A two storey treasure trove in a narrow St Ives street. Antiques, curiosities, second hand musical instruments, jewellery- go into this shop and you will probably find whatever you are looking for.
The owner is engaging and amusing. Worth the visit.
