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 ( 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 ( & the centre of the store has cases to display well-curated, changing temporary exhibitions from that collection
