Cabinets stuffed with a lot of interesting small bits, silver, gems and stuff. I didn't find anything I wanted to buy this time but enjoyed looking and the owner is very friendly

We visited this antique and vintage shop while we were in Whitby. It is located along the side of the harbour so easy to find. Has lots of the smaller cabinets with varies dealers. Plenty of items to browse for every budget. Interesting shop.

Not the biggest of shops but 1000s of items crammed into the glass cabinets. If jewellery is your thing, there's plenty here to look at. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Not so much in ceramics, but a selection of glass and even toys usually present.

A very well laid out and clean establishment, worth having a look at all the collectables in the glass cases, but not the cheapest, worth a visit if you like this sort of thing.

We have visited a couple of times and found it an interesting place with cabinets full of antiques and collectables. There is definitely plenty to see and worth stopping by as the contents are always changing. Just along the harbour side so easy to find.

On the waterfront this is a great shop full of jewellery and ornaments both old and new. The shelves are stuffed full and your bound to find something you would like to have.
