TREASURE





Some photographs I took some time ago but have never got around to sharing. They were all taken in the most eccentric and fascinating second hand shop in the seaside town of Mablethorpe, just north of Skegness on the east coast. It's definitely one of those British seaside resorts that's lost it's shine, and really emotive of past times. The shop is very discreet from the outside but packed literally from the floorboards to the ceiling with 'stuff', treasure, call it what you will. It was visual overload. Everything on sale had had a previous life, lived in someone else's home and somehow ended up in this place.

We spent quite some time in there and all four of us leaving with something. I got a little Rollei 35 LED camera for £2!

Gorgeous photos and looks like the sort of shop you could spend hours in!

The most fascinating and surreal shopping experience I've ever had. The stories from the owner, his wife on a walkie talkie upstairs, and missing that there was a car parked in the shop, acting as a display case for yet more nick-knacks!
