Fab little shop, with a lovely old lady who was so happy to chat about the house, life as a child in Guernsey and answer any questions we had. Cute little items for sale in the shop.

So pleased you enjoyed your visit to the shop. We always imagine that a corner shop was always a place where the shopkeeper had time to meet and greet their customers and we endeavour to keep up the tradition.

A lovely little shop with rooms to go into which were how they were in Victorian times. Basement full of old and new things to buy. Lady in the shop very friendly and chatty.
