A Place Called Common

Common opened it’s doors on 23rd December 2004, then quickly closed them again and went on holiday, reopening on 7th January 2005. We have been plying our trade from Edge Street ever since, muddling through good times, bad times, indifferent times like a dysfunctional family, hopefully those of you that came with us had a good time and have no permanent scars.
