If you are ever in the area this is definitely one place to visit. Jim was brilliant. The kids loved visiting and seeing all the wonderful and interesting items he had. Jim definitely knows his stuff and made it a lovely place to visit. Hope all goes well with new shop, see you again soon xx

My Wife and I went into Jim's shop and had a fantastic time, we spent ages looking at everything Jim had on show and he took lots of time explaining where it all came from and how to avoid certain items on a well known auction site and how some sellers fiddle items to make them look what they are not. We had so much fun we went back the following day and spent even longer just chatting to Jim until we eventually spent more money than we did the day before.

Jim, you certainly improved our knowledge of fossils and we both thank you immensely. I will be back with my Daughter (Jim will know who we are now ;)) next year and maybe we will see you in Dudley should they hold another fossil show in the near future.

A MUST visit if you are on the Isle of Wight

Thanks again Jim

Thanks Jim, you made us feel really welcome and we loved our purchases from your shop, Trinitite and Predator "X" jawbone. My son is looking forward to showing them off to his friends. this is how shops shoud be, great items, great value, and great people behind the counter. Will definitely visit the next time we are on the island. Thank You, and good luck moving to your new shop.
