Bookshops, Aution Houses, etc.
Cheffins auction house here in Clifton Road, Cambridge (www.cheffins.co.uk) has some Library sales which include books, maps, prints & ephemera. You can go in either on sale days or preview days & have a browse, even if not remotely interested in bidding.........the 2017 dates of these are 22 February, 12 July & 18 October. (Similar book/map collections are also, of course, auctioned @ Sothebys etc & the same ease of access can be made - one of London's best kept secrets)
When I mentioned the SCVA Fiji exhibition in Norwich, I should have also mentioned a store in central Norwich called Country & Eastern. Housed in the former Victorian Skating Rink near the market square, you'll see from the website (www.countryandeastern.co.uk) that it includes lots of "parts" of old buildings, all clearly & interestingly labelled, from a wide range of eastern locations. C&E also holds an important collection of 4000+ artefacts which form the South Asian Decorative Arts & Crafts Collection Trust (www.sadacc.co.uk) & the centre of the store has cases to display well-curated, changing temporary exhibitions from that collection
