In the past 27 years, Kerry Condon has sold everything from a tractor to a ship's search light.
But now the owner of Darcy's Old Wares has decided to call it a day as he shuts up shop for the final time on January 31.
"I turned 65 a couple of months ago in November, and it's time to retire," the Lucknow businessman said.
"The clock's beating us and I'm set up for life now.
I'm in good health and it's time to retire and enjoy the fruits of my efforts in life."
Mr Condon never expected to be in this position.

When he first opened the store in 1994, he didn't know what to expect.
"I started here with just a couple of tables, a wardrobe, a few old books and some boxes of bric-a-brac in the hope that I could make it work," he said.
"When I first opened here, I didn't know how it would go and it just went ahead in leaps and bounds.
"In the last few years the internet has slowed the lot down though.
"People buy over the phone and on the internet, Ebay or buy swap and sell, which makes it tough because you're up against all these places that are probably a bit more convenient for various people in all parts of the world to purchase stuff."
Coming to the decision to retire didn't come easy for Mr Condon, but the months since have reminded him why his love of the town has been so strong.
"It has been a very emotional period for me," he said.
"I've had a lot of people calling that have been customers over the 27 years. A lot of people coming in and thanking me for working within the community and having such an odd array of stuff here that probably a lot of other shops don't have.
"I've had a lot of ladies bring in a cake or two, some rocky road just to say thank you. It's very heartening that people do that and a lot of fellas that have bought stuff over the years pull in and might grab another bargain and say good luck in the future."
So what has he got planned for retirement? While he won't be busy with the shop, he'll certainly be busy making memories.
"The thing I'm looking forward to most about retirement is spending time with my lovely partner Julie," he said.
"I've got three grandkids that I want to spend a fair bit of time with, and get to know them a bit more. I work six or seven days a week now and you don't get all that time to yourself."
