“Cool place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Have been here before. A really good place if your looking for something from the past or a vision of new designer's

It's all small shops and has to be a must to visit. Can't go wrong. A good way to spend an hour.

“Morning out in the Manchester rain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had a couple of hours to kill and our relatives suggested Afflecks. We had a great time exploring all the nooks & crannies....our teenage daughter enjoyed looking at all the different designs. A good place to visit if you have an hour or two.
