Chaucer Head Bookshop is a gloriously, well-organized stock of books that seemingly covers every subject. There are specialist sections on Shakespeare, the theater, English literature, topography and natural history, nestling amongst the shelves. Many of the books are easily affordable but you will also find the more expensive "coffee table" photographic masterpiece here. The shop carries a range of unusual greeting cards and Tudor quills with which to make your mark! Note that the building is thought to date back to Shakespeare's time.
The Stratford Antiques Center is a joy for both the serious collector and the bargain hunter. Almost everything in antiques and bric-a-brac (except for large furniture) can be found here. The center's model train-maker is renowned for his ability to build and repair models to an incredible level of detail and accuracy. The owner has an impressive collection of art deco china, and is an accomplished author on the subject. Kate's Corner boasts jewelery from Victorian times to the 1960s, while in complete contrast nearby you will find toy soldiers, antique guns and fascinating scientific instruments. Pottery here includes Toby Jugs, Royal Worcester and Winstanley cats. Upstairs you will find nearly new clothes and fabrics, while the courtyard specialists have books, comics and portraits to tempt you to linger a little longer.
Tucked away down an alley off one of Stratford's main shopping streets, up a flight of stone steps at the back of a preserved building, this long established dress agency is a real find. Here you will find a comprehensive range of women's clothing, shoes, hats and accessories. All are second-hand, but you would never know. Come in, take your time and browse; you will be surprised at what you might find. Top Drawer also carries some top quality designer ranges at a third of the original price. Note that items bought in for sale—good quality named items, although not necessarily designer names—are sold on a sale or return basis.Call for more information.
