In a way, Fred Aldous makes you feel like you're back in reception class at school when you’d make something out of an egg box and some paint and, 20 years later it’s still on your Mum’s sideboard. That wide-eyed sense of everything being interesting pervades the place where things to buy, from greeting cards to posh stationary, arty cameras to every type of pen ever, cool books and fantastic toys, makes it impossible to leave without a purchase. But that’s not all. Where do those steps lead to in the back corner? To a sprawling underground wonderland of art and craft products the likes of which would make a Blue Peter presenter keel over. Crafty!
