For those who don't know...
This is Manchester's Afflecks Palace, the coolest place for shoppers who want something different, there are dozens of independent stalls, small shops and boutiques operate in the one building. The building was once occupied by a department store called Affleck and Brown, hence the name. The building is amazing! The relaxed atmosphere and colorful maze like layout led to Affleck's becoming a mecca for alternative culture, and though out the years has taken many twists including the new cleaner and smart look. I remember coming here as a kid, and it used to scare the shit out off me! hahahah! It was full of the weird and wonderful, where people would be able to express who they are with like minded cool people, and its still like that to this day.... I grew up in this part of Manchester with many of my friends opening boutiques here and going on to becoming well known names in the UK.
