Haberdashers traditionally sold items related to sewing and tailoring, such as thread, ribbons, buttons, zips and other fastenings. They probably descended from the itinerant peddlers who came to markets and fairs.
Goodall’s shop in Silver Street, Bradford sold all these things as well as cloth and made-up clothing. When it closed at the beginning of the 21st century, items of its stock and furnishings were saved for Bradford on Avon Museum, where a display gives a taste of what had become a slightly old-fashioned establishment.
