  • This venue offers a safe family friendly outing. ...you will find anything here from a needle to an anchor with a bargain at every turn. Interesting people and an exotic bite to eat....a tourist attraction without having to pay tourist prices. ...will definitely take the family there again for an interesting Saturday morning. ..
  • It's one of those places that you only go to when you absolutely need to. You can get some pretty good deals if you know how to bargain and have a keen eye for what is quality and what is not. Always quite busy. Food for curtains, suits and formal attire.
