It is so sad to lose this characterful vintage emporium that was a landmark in St Albans. There is nothing like it in that area and it will be missed by avid collectors and bargain hunters.

My family and I have been visiting the Fleetville Vintage Emporium for several years. It has gone from 3 building to 2 now. But we still endure a 90 minute round road trip, in busy traffic for the chance to have a browse. We always...More
