By George Dodd in The Press.

THE “world’s first” ghost shop has opened its doors in York – stocking more than 1,000 spooky collectables.

The York Ghost Merchants, located in the former Pinder and Scott’s bakery shop at number 6 Shambles, stocks unique ghost-related souvenirs for visitors to take home.

The shop has been created and designed by David Bloodworthy and Angus Mcarthur, who said it aims to tell the story of ghost making, which dates back more than 600 years.

David said: “The story we tell is of the tradition of ghost making, which dates back to the 1400s when pilgrims would purchase badges, tokens or souvenirs which they would take into holy shrines to be imbued with positive spirit and energy.
