What will you find in Curiosity Corner?
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
