|Debby working hard at Westpoint|
I drew the short straw this week, because it was my turn to work in the shop and therefore put everything away! Chris, Debby`s husband had dropped most of it off for us, and put it all at the back, and it really didn`t take me very long at all, I am quite impressed at just how organised we are getting. I was surprised to see Debby in the shop later in the day, she had popped over to drop a couple of things off, but kept coming back to show me what she had bought! A little gallery has been open for the week next to us in an empty shop, and Debby bought a really lovely little piece, it`s hard to describe, because it was partly photograph, but mixed in with mixed media on glass. Chris was debating whether to buy a picture of some birds which was quite expensive and Debby was trying to persuade him not to, which I thought was a bit mean as she had just bought one she liked! She later came back with a gorgeous top from a new clothes shop that has opened called Snob. They have some great stock, and eventually when I am not in the shop I will pop over, because every time I walk past I drool over the window display. Unfortunately their hours are the same as ours so it makes it rather difficult. There are two new clothes shops in Wellington and they both seem to be rather good, and another one is opening later this month. The fish shop closed this week which is a great shame, although they are continuing to trade at the Farm Shop at Rumwell. The Mary Portas bid has gone in, but there is such a lot of competition. We get quite frustrated that more people don`t realise what a lovely little place it is to come and shop.
