JURASSIC JIM Reviews
Jim is friendly and knowledgeable on everything he sells and a lot more, his prices are good and his shop is more like an Aladdin’s cave of fossils and crystals well worth a visit more »
Friendly informative & an amazing selection of items! I have bought online & in person & it’s always the first place we go when visiting the lovely Isle of Wight more »
Excellent store. Vast selection of fossils and even more so, minerals and raw elements. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who were more than happy to help. Great that you can pick up and inspect anything you like, too. Great value as well - worth a visit for sure.
This is a great shop for rocks and fossils and Jim is a really great guy. On entering we told the kids what we always tell them "look with your eyes not your hands, don't pick anything up" and Jim said "this is my shop and I'm happy for you to pick up and look at anything you want, I'm confident you won't break anything" which meant that the boys could then explore the shop to their hearts content. The prices are very cheap and I think that anyone could go in there and find something good for only a few pounds maximum. The prices ranged from £1 up so it suited all budgets. A great little shop with a pleasant owner and staff.
