What will you find in Curiosity Corner?

Posted on 26th March 2021 | in Business News

For those who are missing browsing the delights in collectables and antiques venue Artique, we have some good news.
Linda Hawcock who was one of the main dealers in Artique, has set up Curiosity Corner, which can be found right in the centre of Amble.

She and some of the other dealers have set up shop in three units in the Old Fourways on Bridge Street, and are hoping to open their doors on 12 April, once Covid restrictions allow.

Linda (pictured) told The Ambler, “I started in Artique back in 2018, selling on behalf of my Mum, and I ended up with eight units. I learned a lot, and made some lovely friends there. We kept in touch and so some of them are joining me.”

Linda is no stranger to the area, her family are from Amble and Radcliffe, and she has been planning her new venture since the end of last year. The property which housed Artique, at the bottom of the Wynd, is due to be turned into houses.

“It saddens me to see the old Artique building being knocked down. I really don’t even want to look when I go past it. But I am very excited about the new business, and can’t wait to be up and running.”

Curiosity Corner@Amble will be stocked with vintage goods, collectables, furniture, fashion accessories, vintage jewellery, crystals and handmade soaps and bath bombs.

From 12 April, Curiosity Corner will be open from 10am – 5pm seven days a week. In the meantime, you can find them on Facebook: Curiosity-Corner-Amble

  1. Hello Linda

    I hope you are well.

    Just a quick message.

    My name is Peter Shields. I used to sell some of my art work in the Artique and was devastated when Pauline told me it was closing. It was a wonderful place.
    I was actually up in Amble last week but didn’t notice your lovely shop until I was heading back to Nottinghamshire. If I had known you were there, I would have brought my portfolio with me to see if you would have taken some of my work to sell on a sale or return basis. ( I always told Pauline what kind of price I was after and she put her bit on top for selling them )
    Please take a look at my facebook page and let me know if you would like me to send you some of my work. I will have a new website soon as I am working on its construction.

    Many thanks for your time and I will definitely pop into Curiosity Corner next time I am up in Amble.
    I wish you every success. It is lovely to see another shop full of beautiful items.

    Kind regards

    Peter x
