John Tancock has opened Poptastic Collectables in Orchard Street.

He is selling Funko Pops, which are toys from famous franchises.

Mr Tancock said: “I originally refused to buy them because they are so collectable.

“For my birthday, I got a Buffy vampire, and I started my collection.

“At the beginning of this year, I thought about selling them and started an online shop.

“It got to the point the week before last where there was too much stock for a one-bedroom flat.

“So I decided to go big or go home. I saw the shop on the Saturday, came in on the Sunday, and with help from quite a few friends, we were open by 11.30am.”

Mr Tancock is also offering Pokémon Go players somewhere to charge their phones.
