I'm looking for home bakers to sell their wares in my shop. Any takers?

Harrogate Hitler

I love this story.

I believe Martin Bormann is taking over as leader until a suitable replacement can be found.
Whatever happened to a sense of humour?

Five a day

Lady came in and bought some wooden fruit today. She said it was her answer to five a day! Hope she has good teeth.

Old friends and buying from a gypsy

A strange day in the shop. For the first time in years a "traveller" came to see me.
"Will you buy from a gypsy today?" she asked. Not being particularly superstitious I bantered with her and eventually bought a yard of lace because I don't need bad luck at the moment!
Then, half an hour later, in came a couple I had not seen for over 25 years. I used to write about his footballing exploits when I was a junior newspaper reporter. Damned good he was too.
David and Barbara Wilson from Barnoldswick, it was lovely to see you. It's great to wipe away the years on a grey Tuesday afternoon. Give my love to "Barlick".

Magic mushrooms!

I now have so many wooden mushrooms in my shop I'm thinking of renaming it The Magic Mushroom!

I'll swear they multiply overnight.
