After fainting with excitement and making friends with all the ladies in the office of our new suppliers I, with a little bit of help from Matt, nearly managed to get us bared for life! There was one lady, Jean who was a no nonsense, don’t smile, don’t small talk, in fact don’t even look …

*Yesteryear Happy Memories*

 What a difference a few decades makes when your buying and selling. When we started out over three decades ago, before the markets, we tried to make ago of party plan. We would turn up with a rail of stock and hope the hostess had bothered to invite someone. Matt absolutely hated it and would …
