Very nice place to go to if your looking for nothing, you're sure to find something. You wander through shops without frontiers, and if you want to talk talk, you'll find friendly people every where, and if you don't want to talk don't , you'll find smiles everywhere. Good Vibs live there.

... artisanal small shops. mainly catering for the younger crown if I am honest. However, still nice to browse around. Great that such a place exists in this corporate age.

Afflecks definitely is the place to go if you're visiting the Nothern Quarter of Manchester. This sort of "inside market" is full of vintage clothes, extravagant jewels and accessories, and the vibe in there is just very nice and original. You also can get a tatoo (ink or henna tattoos) or a piercing in some (clean) shops.

This is a really nice shop situated in the Northern Quarter. If you like vintage, this is the place to be ! There is four floors and you can find whatever you want. The prices are very low. The insinde is very particular with decorations that represented well the 90'.

In this shop firstly, you have many floors and this is sorted. You have objects for piercing, accessories, shoes, clothes, video games... This is a vintage shop. You can find some really beautiful things. This shop is in the northern quarter it's really worth going through here because this is a wonderful quarter.

If you want to find something you must go there. It's a rummage with many things. For instance clothes, piercing, disguise, and many other things. But for me it's a bit of a strange place, because the atmosphere was kind of frightening.

This shop is fantastic ! I would definitely recommend it. There are 4 floors, different types of clothes and accessories. You can find almost everything and not expensive. The best is the decoration and the walls ! Colours, pictures and the atmosphere are not to be missed. You won't be disappointed and it's a great place for people who like... More

I always visit Afflecks when I'm in Manchester. It's tradition! I started going when I was 16 and now 30 years later I still visit and my daughter is now 16 and visits regularly too. Friendly vibe, eclectic stalls - it's got everything. You could get lost in there but then you just come across a great stall you've never... More

What an absolute delight of variation of shops/stalls within one building. All under one roof recommended to while away time in the City and to avoid inclement weather outside. Loved the American sweet/drinks shop' quirky clothes and jewellery; the bead shop and so much more.
