Loose's - a museum in Norwich where everything is for sale

Loose's used to be a china and glassware emporium. Now the premises are filled with the most amazing range of artefacts from the past. It's like a museum of everyday objects spanning the last hundred years where, instead of a description, labels carry a price.

There's everything from individual horse brasses for £1 to a vibraphone for £995. (All right, not everything is "everyday".)

You could spend a whole day in there and still not see everything. And the prices are very reasonable - I have to be very disciplined! I've seen similar things costing more in charity shops.

I can think of several bloggers who would love the place. I haven't spotted much that's specifically canal- or narrowboat-related, but there's plenty of brass for those who like that sort of thing. And not much muck.
