We interview Michael Tipton about what it's like to run a collecting shop. ...
You always know that a shop's successful when, while trying to film the videos for 'Your Shop', you keep getting interrupted by people coming in the shop or asking questions. In fact, it was so busy while we were trying to interview Michael Tipton, the owner of The Toy Emporium  in Bridgnorth that we had to close the store... and still people were looking through the windows and trying the door handle!

Michael is a regular face at numerous swapmeets up and down the country and is well known for stocking some high quality diecast models, however he also runs a superb store in the historic town of Bridgnorth. The shop is split between Steiff teddy bears, diecast models and model railways - ensuring there's something for every collector.

Make sure you watch the video below to hear more about the history of The Toy Emporium and get some great advice if you're thinking of opening your own shop.
