A salon owner has paid tribute to a second hand shop, which was much loved in its heyday.

Daniel Collett opened Collett’s Salon, in Belle Vue Street, last month and decorated the walls with photos of Collett’s Second Hand Furniture.

Daniel’s uncle, Cyril Collett, owned the shop in Healey Lane, which was a hot spot for shoppers during the sixties and seventies.

He said: “We thought it would be nice to share pictures of the family. It is nice to carry on the tradition.”

Collett’s Furniture sold items collected from the homes of locals who had died.

Daniel said: “I remember going with Cyril and we’d take everything from the bed, furniture and even pianos.

“He would collect anything. I am always asked if I am related to him because the shop was so well known.”

Staff at the salon are also planning a Disney fund raiser in aid of the daughter of one of their clients.

Princess Ava Nicole Hosier suffers from a rare condition called congenital disorder of glycosylation. The event takes place on Saturday April 26. Call 01924 650128 for tickets.
