For as long as I can remember, this culturally diverse retail cave has had its wares spilling onto the footpath for all to see. I personally, am still always enthralled by the mix of both functional and decorative items that are heaped together in a hodge-podge bonfire of colour. Yet, never is there a single customer in sight. Never. Not one. If I were inclined to enjoy conspiracy theories ( which quietly I am) I would wonder whether the customers that I don’t see, enter through the ‘ back door’ and make a beeline for the top-notch wacky tobaccy and a big fat hookah pipe that Aladdin has well disguised behind the brass vessels.
