Noticed an interesting new shop had opened up very locally - a range of 'stuff' that was good to rummage round in...
Owner said that these little dolls were hers when she was a youngster (that would have been some time ago by the looks of her...)
Nice enough stuff but owner was a little recalcitrant when it came to prices and actually what was for sale....
'Customers' behind me were heard to mutter how they: "....wished that I had kept mine as a child..."
Shop owner looked a little smug at this point.
Owner came close to slapping hands when customers went to pick something up!!
To be honest The Owner (now a proper noun!) seemed reluctant to part with anything.....
Owner muttered something about having to hold on to stuff because she was due to appear on 'Hoarders'....
I told Owner that she needs to get a grip....
The Owner said that she had a grip thank you very much and that grip was firmly around all the old things in her 'shop'.
The Owner kindly spent a good hour or so digging out older photographs of the same cupboard taken over the past 5 years - give or take
The crowd gasped at the changes over the years
The Owner said that the 'stocking up' process has taken some time
A constant stream of 'refinement'
Oh yes - the good old days when it was nearly bare!
Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end......
PS: 'Are those more tins in that there cupboard Arthur?'
PPS: ' I do believe that they are Martha'
PPPS: 'Some people just do not know when to stop do they Arthur'
PPPPS: 'No Martha...............dear'
PPPPPS: 'I've got my very beady eye on you Arthur'
PPPPPPS:' Yes Martha'
PPPPPPS: Recently the Cupboard of Wonders had to be moved to another 'establishment' - The Owner
PPPPPPPPS: It was a seamless transaction........
PPPPPPPPPS: Cootard's Understanding Seamless ServiceS (CUSS) currently floating on the Stock Exchange
PPPPPPPPPPS: The Owner has just remembered that the Cupboard of Wonders is 'famous' and can just be seen in the background of Mollie Makes Magazine here and some tins can be seen too I think....If you squint you will be able to read the Cupboard of Wonders is actually mentioned in print! Such fame
