The Tokenhouse started out in 1973 on Tokenhouse Yard by Diz and Geoff a couple of art students, selling handcrafted items, restored furniture and antiques. Now in their bigger and more accessible St Peter's Gate shop they are considered a longstanding hidden gem of Nottingham. Selling products for all ages and interests they often have people coming in with parents and grandparents who have been shopping with them over the many years. They sell an eclectic range of cards, wrap, toys, books, home furnishings and jewellery. They are also still run by the same family and proud to be completely independent.
