Main Street Trading Company

"The shop was originally built by Walter Ballantyne & Son, Grocers, Wine Merchants and Italian Warehousemen. It was then a sort of giant general store, selling goods from ladies shoes to their own whisky. After Ballantynes, the space was run as a rather wonderful and eccentric auction house. As much as possible has been preserved from the original shop fit, including what are believed to be the original front reused in the café."
