New Bookshop - an update.

You want to see some pictures of the new shop?
Do you?


Here's what it looked like when we got it.
It's quite pretty already.
Shame there wasn't electricity. And who's that guy on the right of the picture. He looks dangerous.
(it's Tim. He isn't dangerous)

Well, it's been a week since we got the keys and this is what it looks like now!

Electricity! and that guy has been replaced by bookcases.

It's been a busy busy week and we're really pleased how things are going at the new shop. We had a few problems with plumbing. No water/ No hot water/ boiler makes the sound of a screaming goat.

If there's somethin' strange in your neighborhood, Who ya gonna call? Andy Hollings
If it's somethin' weird an' it don't look good, Who ya gonna call? Andy Hollings

Andy Hollings - totally unstaged.

Andy fixed all these problems, replaced bad stuff and made stuff nice. And what a reasonable price! If you need a plumber, and you're in the North Londonish area, then I suggest you call Andy. His number is on the van.

We've had some great suggesitons for our "name our bookshop" competition.
Here are a few...
The Bookmans
Kids Delight
Tim's Toys and Tales (Tim likes this one)
Brain Boggling Books

We've had about 50 entries so far, and there's still over a week to go until the competition ends.

Here's another picture of the new shop...

Next, we should probably think about putting stuff on the shelves. Suggestions most welcome.
