A Little History
David Evans married to Abigail had 5 children William, Jack, Tom, Ivor and Annie. David Evans died at a young age and for many years the business was run by his widow who in turn passed it on to Annie and Willie Evans (Willie and Annie Watch) Willie being the one that did clock and watch repairs and was also in charge of the town clock until his Death in 1963. Annie knowing the likes and dislikes of her discerning customers, Annie died in 1980 and the business was passed on to her niece and nephew Peggy and David. Peggy and Lavinia (David's wife) ran the business together.
In 1982 it was decided to include china and glass to complement the range of jewellery and watches, this was opened adjacent to the jewellery shop which has since been further extended. In 2008 David Evans had his first online shop which sells some of the pottery and glass found in the shop.
