Date: 19 September 2016
The website is Desktop, iPad, and mobile user friendly.
Although our main focus is selling antique and vintage jewellery we decided to expand our product range with collectibles and memborabilia because sometimes it's the least expected place to find your treasure. We often come across some wonderful finds when we venture out on the search for jewellery and like to think 'Maybe our customers will like this and have tried to find this exact item', it's good to know we can give our customers a nice eureka moment!
Visitors to the website - Internet tip regarding visiting websites
It's good to bookmark your favourite website. When you visit/re-visit a website it's a good idea to clear your browsing history because the website you're visiting might have new updates since you last viewed it and also sometimes the search engines might take a little time to show the new updates. Enjoy your time browsing the website.
