Rhos Point Books: Another Bookshop In Colwyn Bay Area
Just down the road from Colwyn Bay where there are a couple of decent bookshops is the sleepy seaside town of Rhos on Sea where there is another half decent 2nd hand bookshop.
A cramped little shop with books squeezed into every available space. A small ladder is needed to get at some books.
Bay Bookshop: 2nd best book shop in North Wales
This shop looks nothing special from the outside but inside this small unassuming shop are some very collectable and antiquarian books.
This place is even worth a look just to see the war-time posters that are pasted onto the ceiling.
Ponderosa Cafe Complex: Shop in the Clouds
Extensive choice of crafts and souvenirs, as well as a cafe and restaurant.
Situated at 1,400 feet above sea level, the views from here are stunning.
Large car park - very popular with coach parties.
The Cellar..: For all your medieval needs..
This is a beautyfull little shop that sells swords, armor replicas and all sorts of things inspired by times past.
What to buy: Shops like these are fairly rare now and the owner of this shop is truly passionate about what he sells. So if you need some of the stuff, might as well go and buy it where it means something rather than in a shop where the only thing that counts is the till.Related to:

Lots of shops, great atmosphere, specially the days before Christmas in Cardiff
Even if it was very very cold!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cardiff has lots of shopping centers, Old style Arcades..... A paradise lol for shopping lovers hehehehe
Loved the sound of Welsh and the writing, so at the beginning I used to buy any postcard with it. Now I just love it, but apart of ARAF that is written in every single road, I can not understand anything hehehehe
In this shop in front of the Cardiff castle, you can find the biggest and the smallest lovespoon.
According to Welsh folklore, these ornately carved spoons were traditionally made from a single piece of wood by a suitor to show his affection to his loved one.
I nice tradition, but diamond rings are still nicer lol
