Art and Stuff Five Years Old

October 25, 2018

Abingdon Art and Stuff
Art and Stuff has been selling antiques, pictures, collectibles, and quirky stuff for five years now, and has been a great addition to Abingdon since taking over the premises opposite Abingdon War Memorial. Inside the shop, Gromit, the dog, is always on hand to greet customers in a quiet friendly manner.

Last time I was in there I had a look through a pile of old newspapers from the 1930s and 40s, and bought a Daily Mirror from January 1936. Most of the paper was dedicated to King George V whose funeral was that day. ‘Throughout the system of Cable and Wireless, Ltd., a two-minute silence will be observed to-day from 1.30 p.m.

Circuits will be suspended and cable and wireless instruments, which in the ordinary course never cease working on any day of the year, will be silent as a world-wide tribute to the late King.”
