Last weekend me and the Missus had a wander round Kelham Island in Sheffield.
Kelham Island is a area between two waterways just outside the city centre.
It is a mixture of delapidated waterside warehouses and regenerated red-brick buildings, breweries, student digs, cafes and shops. Its a fascinating hotch-potch of old and new. There are quirky features round every corner.
There was a wedding car Land Rover!
and Stingray on a mural!
Just off the island is the Nichols Building; two floors of collectables, bric a brac, retro and kitsch. We spent a happy half hour rummaging and could easdilly have spent longer there.
Just some of the things I spotted were: MASK stencil set, Escape from Colditz Board Game, Sindy Sink Unit, Codeg tinplate till, Dr. Who Board Game, wooden motorcycle rocker, Annette walking doll, 90's Thunderbirds annuals.
There were also tons of Sixties and Seventies paraphernalia like pictures, chairs, record decks, tables, ornaments, lights, TV's, prints and so on.
If your'e in Sheffield or near Kelham Island why not check out the Nichols Building. Its listed on TripAdvisor
Reader Tony K visited Metropolis Toys in his area and has written about his day there, which has also featured on Moonbase Central. Have you been to any interesting collectables and kitsch shops readers? Tell us about it!
