Oh how the other half lives. I was wandering listlessly down my local high street recently – it’s definitely had its day and is now very much in the shadow of its bright shiny and exciting new out of town shaped sister. I had been looking for ideas for present for the forthcoming Cristmas bunfight. Sadly, nothing could flood into my mind. I did however gain cheer and much relief when I visited the local independent pharmacy. They have a huge counter dedicated to all things perfume, after-shave and make up shaped. Wow the fantastic range of perfumes was eye popping. All the latest after shave items too. They are in a great position – the Post Office shares their shop floor. You can’t help taking a good look at the display shelves whilst waiting to go up to the PO counter. I shall definitely be popping back there in weeks leading up to Christmas. Shop local!
