Top hats (£35),Beatles LPs(in original unplayed condition-£45),
Silver sparkling antique jewelery displayed behind glass(various prices)
He hugs and smiles and mentions the best has been stored
'some lads in Manchester during the riots -my shop name was on their Twitter..'
We explore all the floors wherein violins,guitars,clarinets ,gongs assemble
with price tags denoting their antique status-mirrors,Bibles,chandeliers ,
all piled like refugees in random associations,stacked and ready..
He is as interesting as anything here-long hair beer barrel smiler
with a quick wit and a readiness to bargain.If i had £20, i would be top hat thom-
as it is i gain a smile and a survey of once loved artifacts,awaiting new lovers
Acts include the spinner of plates/folder of napkins
cutlery picker upper/server of entrees/taker of orders and the tablesetter
Ringmaster father orchestra leader guides his minions
with a deft switch of his eyes and  points the way to just desserts
In a previous lifetime/in some aspect of Italy-the circus migrated
to Huddersfield,where every night their inddor show attracts an audience
who pay not just for food-more the colours and presentations and lights
Yes-the Grappoli Family Circus will be serving YOU tonight!
