Wow, such a treasure to visit. Brought back such good memories of my youth. Such pleasant owners to open up their own personal collection to share with everyone.

Some interesting stuff here but the guy who was in the shop when we arrived didn’t even say hello. Some basic “meet and greet” training wouldn’t go amiss
