A decidedly odd day in the shop.
We have been getting publicity for our support of the local festival. Waterstones have decided not to support the festival - which would have lost all of its literary element. The four independant bookshops in town have come together to put up the cash / support
First customer pops in and walks to the counter. She says "I just wanted to congratulate you on supporting the festival" and walks out.
Next customer appears, makes their way to the counter and tells us "Well done for supporting the festival - that will really put the people behind you" and leaves.
Third customer is clutching a Waterstones bag, and tells us how wonderful it is that the independant bookshops are supporting the festival, and goes.
Another customer walks in .........
Oh I can't be bothered......
