The old green wooden shed at the end of my road, up from the
adjacent to the Baptist chapel, the one that used to be a joiners but has stood
empty for years, now has a new purpose in life. It’s become a reclaimed
architectural and shabby chic furniture shed selling all sorts of bric-a-brac
and other assorted wonders.
I’ve not been in yet but I may pop in to see what they have on offer. Who knows, I may be able to pick up and Aladdin’s lamp and get myself three wishes (well it is the pantomime season) so watch out you-know-who.
Walking past the place this morning I happily noticed some very fine fir trees in the yard. Christmas tree vending has come to my road and for once I am pleased with change. That old yard has stood empty and unloved for far too long and I hope that whoever has taken it on does well with their trees and junk.
They’ve had a big hand painted sign made with a fat cheery Santa and the legend ‘Premium Christmas Trees available here’, which judging by the examples I saw, propped against the wall of the Baptist Chapel, is exactly what they are.
