Concession at Hopkinsons in Nottingham

Post by AndyPop » Tue Jun 26, 2018 12:56 pm

Being short of time these days ( 5 kids) and not having enough time to list things online I have taken a small cabinet in Hopkinsons Vintage & Antiques centre on Station St, Nottingham. I'll be stalling out some of the excess from home if anyone is passing & fancies a perusal.

Wish I lived up your way I would certainly have popped in for a cuppa and a nose around. Don't forget you can offer items for sale on here as well.

Well done on giving it a go Andy. Something I have been considering of late. Please let us know how you get on!

I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

I'll see how it develops. It's a 3 month rolling deal so I should get a reasonable idea of sales over that period. Early days of trying to find a balance between displaying pocket money items and a few gems. I've gone with a selection of cork floats, flies, cheaper fly reels all the way to a boxed Exalts and an Altex No.2 Mk4 with spare composite spool.
