Adullam’s Cave has built an enviable reputation for selling numerous quaint and the quirky products, enticing customers from all over the country to visit the store. “In fact, customers have often said our shop is like a Tardis, as it just keeps on going – there’s always more to see!
“We’re located just out of town so we have to work extra harder to encourage customers to visit us. We have a large car park though, which makes it easy for people to call in, and it’s very handy for customers who are buying large items from us,” says Colin.
