Apple Time

Not quite the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness yet but the early mornings are certainly a bit cooler. There are a few 'apple' items coming into the shop.

More of the popular enamelled buckets Usually £22 now reduced to £18

Also a new line, a wicker apple picker (about 3 feet long) at a great price of just £7.50!

I hope that last year's best selling wrapping paper with pictures of dozens of varieties will be arriving soon. I already have the sheets of 'apple names' wrap and will try to scan some of it to add to this post soon.

Remember Dan Dare?!

I was just messing around on-line (as you do) looking for a new source of nostalgic greeting cards and I came across this guy, from a different time-space continuum (as they say on Star Trek ... oops ... mixing my sci-fi).
I've put in a link to a page with lots of old art work & down loads. Still need to find the cards but thought it about time that I started blogging again :)
I recall that my comic was Girl magazine which was a bit tame by comparison. The boy next door but one took Eagle and got home from school later than me, So .... every Wednesday I was off round there to read it before he returned to a new (but well thumbed) copy of Eagle!
