Relics

Snapped in Relics, a junk shop in Glasgow's West End.

 

"A junk shop has a fine film of dust over the window, its stock may include literally anything that is not perishable, and its proprietor, who is usually asleep in a small room at the back, displays no eagerness to make a sale... its appeal is to the jackdaw inside all of us, the instinct that makes a child hoard copper nails." - George Orwell, Just Junk - But Who Could Resist It?
