It’s a relatively easy stroll, just 50 meters from beginning to end. There are stores specialising in restored furniture, ornaments and homewares from days gone by, and much, more! My grandson was fascinated by an old “wireless”.

As well as antique bric-a-brac, and furniture, you may pick up a retro find at the Guildford Book Exchange. This spot has been a staple on James Street for decades and it is a haven for book lovers, where you’re sure to find a good read, from a large selection of books.

For music lovers, The Guildford Book Exchange also has a big range of used records. Much of the albums and singles on vinyl are from the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s.
