My boyfriend and I visited The Nichols Building for the first time yesterday. Just a short walk down from the University's main campus, stepping into this seemingly unassuming building felt like stepping back in time. It was a joy to wander around and we did literally spend hours exploring an array of vintage clothing, bags, shoes, furniture, CDs, records, comics... More

Really not worth visiting from the point of view of buying antiques - just a load of overpriced old tat. If you can find your way into it, and are OK with the steps, the cafe is OK. Service is a bit slow, but it's friendly, and cheap.

Lovely homemade cakes and snacks in a quite nice shopping space. Would definitely go back when I have time to look through the things on sale.

I purchased "Mrs loves this" jewelry for peanuts. Set of jade chopsticks and resters for peanuts. Cool clothing for peanuts. If you have a peanut allergy, this is the only reason to avoid because everything... More

Ok if you are looking for fine art and valuable antiques you probably won't find it here, but if you enjoy retro and upcycled gems from your childhood, things which you remember seeing at your grans house this place has it. lots of imaginative and quirky displays and it will make you look at "old stuff" in a new light....

A good variation of items from the small to big furniture. My daughters spent up there and so we will have to keep going. Hopefully they will keep changing the items for sale
