Although most of the shop lots aren’t filled up yet, it’s safe to say there are over 39 active sellers. Best place to get hipster / relics / creative / weird stuffs.

If you like, vintage, costume, clothes, jewellery, art, eccentric, weird and wonderful things - or even if you don't - just go and take a walk around it will be worth it.

This is now my favourite place ever! We spent so long here, the artwork inside is amazing and all the different stall was great. Cannot wait to go back! If you are in Manchester definitely stop here.

Afflecks is great, and well worth a visit but beware if you are planning to visit on a Sunday as some of the floors (and therefore the retailers) are not open. This isn't made clear on the website as far as I can see or...More
