You can go into all the old shops in Beamish.  Here’s a few pics;

Even the prices were right!

Beamish At the Co Op

The assistant in the Co Op was a lovely German student, who spoke excellent English and was very informative!  All the food labels are printed from the original!

All the buildings are amazing, and the Print shop is no exception.  You can really get a sense of the past in these buildings!

Bygone ware some of these are still going strong

There’s something quite charming about old packaging.  Although the colours are limited, it was still possible for the personalities of these items to shine and jostle with each other.  Some of these brands are still going strong too!
