    Please would you add details of the lovely shop in West Street that sells all sorts of unusual things from handbags to candles, clothes and furniture and also has a couple of seats for a coffee.
    I have tried to find their telephone number on the internet today to find out their opening hours, but can’t find them anywhere.
    Thanks.
