When my grand-daughter was small before they moved, the very kind lady in there would sell the odd crystal drop as my g'daughter was fascinated by the light passing through and even though she is now a sophisticated almost 17 still twists them around!
I may drag myself down as I now have new grand-daughter! it will seem so strange to see the shop finally close..:-(
Self promotion apart, the truth is it's hard work being a small independent business. Unless you are bursting with passion for the business and even when you are, it is hard to keep things going. The obvious things like having no parking space, being surrounded by red lines, lack of advertising and funding don't help. Ultimately our passions lie elsewhere and we hope this scary change will push us into fulfilling our goals.
