Antiquarian Records & Books
Finally a place where vinyl lovers can unite and spend hours delving into past treasures which have paved the way for the evolution of some fine music.

Browse the racks and find that a reasonably high turnover of goods allows prices to remain rational as opposed to the collector's estimation. Be sure to view the second-hand gramophones, record players, books and array of science fiction toys from Transformers to Star Wars figures.

Farfetched believes heavily in "artistic recycling", having fetched many a piece from China, Tibet, Thailand, Morocco and Mexico, each portraying markings of their country of origin's own traditional skills. Items include saree cushions, candelabras, unusual sculptures and clay figurines, Moroccan vases, lamps and antique terracotta urns. Some more peculiar items include an Indian palace door transformed into a dining table, a huge horse carved out of stone and traditional artefacts designed to ward off evil. The owners refuse to deal with overseas manufacturers who exploit labour.
