Despite wandering around this place wondering what on earth I was doing there, I find myself returning every time I visit Devonport It's a complete hotchpotch of eclectic bric a brac with seemingly endless nooks and crannies of treasures, ephemera and old tat.

Wide range of antiques to suit a variety of interests. Mostly small items rather than furniture. Prices seemed reasonable.

Not what I would call an antique store, majority of items under 30 years old. Interesting enough for a quick look but I probably wouldn't return.

Spent an enjoyable time at Antique Emporium. I suspect that it's a number of like businesses under one roof. Plenty to look at. Clean. Worth a visit.

So many interesting things, lots of great china and porcelain, and just about something for everyone. Give yourself lots of time to browse, or plan a few trips, because you'll definitely need it to see everything. Nice people running the place, very helpful and friendly!

A truly incredible display of antiques and bric-a-brac spread over several floors. All sorts of stuff to suit everyone. You could spend hours there!
