Walked past Merry Go Round on Clarence Road, E5 a couple of days ago(2nd hand childrens clothing etc shop) and its reopening on 1st September under new management. They are looking for things to sell as I think its going to be run under similar lines as before. Sorry don't have the contact number but I am so happy as I bought loads of stuff there before my baby was born and it was always good quality so hope the new management will be as good and friendly as the previous owners.

Oh that is interesting - I only found out it was closing a few days before it shut - thanks for that

I didn't know it had closed. What happens to all my stuff they have already? I'm sure my credit account must be nearly enough to buy myself a pint by now although if inflation hits 5% I could be in trouble smile

Hi ketchupkisses - I just passed by chance and got the grand sum of £4 - which tbh I think was wrong because I gave them stacks of stuff to sell shock

Does anyone have any details of the previous owners? I had left lots of stuff with them (3 ikea bags of clothes and 1 bag of toys) and have not heard a thing. I only found out that it had closed through this thread. I had been calling for a couple of weeks but always got voice-mail box that said it was full so couldn't leave a message.

Spoke to the new owner today who unfortunately cant help. I am really annoyed angry as they take all your details when you leave items with them but have obviously chosen not to contact people to whom they owe money.

Don't have the details - I just happened to go there just before it shut..all a bit odd really

I just called the merry go round shop today and they are finally open today so I hope to drop round to check it out this week. I am so pleased that we still have this shop in Hackney as its great to be able to get good quality 2nd hand stuff for babies as it saves loads

I went there today...nice clothes in there - met the owner she seemed nice. Not quite the same vibe in there - I think a little less community minded in some way
