Strange Days

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......

So does holly make a habit of fixing up old clothes then? Or is that a new service your shop has? Hehe...

What did the fifth customer do?

It appears we are all condemned to a weekend of suspense and speculation on that point...

1) Yes Holly does - one of her other roles in life is as a seamstress.
2) Brought a book - but that would have ruined the story
3) wait till i put in about Lua, my little Brasilian lass.

Sadly weekend is over, and I have to work again.
