I loved every minute of my visit to this shop. The man serving was so warm and welcoming and I felt totally at ease and not rushed as I had a good browse around.

I am so pleased you still think it's a great shop but you obviously haven't read my response to your previous review in May 2014. I am still a gift shop and NOT a mineral adviser and you clearly didn't ask to look at any books. Thank you for returning and do call in again and say hello. More
