For a little over 50 years this has been a source of curiosities and cast-off s. It has an unreconstructed air, unstyled and certainly not “curated”, with books, records, clothes, militaria, furniture, jewellery, crockery and assorted oddities stacked up amid houseplants, lit by rows of paper globes and skylights. An old-fashioned junk shop atmosphere is at the heart of its appeal, but no business lasts this long without knowing the value of what it’s selling.
