Been a few times with my son who loves curiosities. Everytime we go there's cool stuff to see and we've bought some good pieces too. All the COVID bits are up to date and the people there are awesome. Highly recommend

Such friendly owners, and everywhere you look there is something new or fascinating to see. Their hats are a work of art and a couple of my friends have had bespoke hats made which perfectly incorporate steam punk. Their airsoft weapons are amazing and extremely detailed. It's just such a fun shop and you aren't pestered or made to feel like you have to buy something.
