Takes me back to my youth
In fact this shop sort of takes me back to my fathers youth, not mine, although certain parts did bring up a feeling of nostalgia. The cynical would say that it’s attraction was the fact that it was raining stair rods outside and it was dry, with a coal fire burning inside.
A.G.Hendy Home Stores, in the middle of Hastings Old Town is more like the owners indulgence rather than a serious attempt at retailing. It reminded me of one of those touchy feely museums where you are allowed to handle the exhibits…. a little “Disney” for some, but I loved it.
