I have FUCKING FLEECE SHOP! i win sof ar

Lilymaid · 13/06/2007 12:24

Try Haverhill Suffolk. No bookshop and the priciest clothes shop is Dorothy Perkins. But two decent shopping centres are about 20 miles away - Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds.

I so win. I live 25 miles in any direction from a city or large town. My village has Michaels Country Lady Fashions. It's incredible. Sells the most bizarre clothes you could imagine. Lots of bias cut linen with added ruffles in unlikely places, strange raffia cloaks and pill box hats with nets and feathers. Anyone buying an outfit would come out looking like a visiting African dignatory. Or just a freak.

my fleece shop beats your frilly knicker old lady shop

tissy · 13/06/2007 12:24


nearest Sainsbury's at least 20 miles away

Waitrose 40 miles away

M+S in town but useless

this place doesn't have 1 bookshop not one WH Smith sells a few books, but it doesn't count, because they don't sell any books that I would actually buy

Carmenere · 13/06/2007 12:25

Me my nearest town only has high street stores. Nothing individual, interesting, exclusive or expensive at all anywhere.

MamaG · 13/06/2007 12:25

I was in carnforth on sunday

Nbg · 13/06/2007 12:25

lol at that link!
dont know what happened there.

We do have a Fat Face but I cant justify £70 for a pair of baggy trousers.

fryalot · 13/06/2007 12:25

We have a post office that is open every other Tuesday morning.

The ladies fashions sells cake upstairs! Ties and hankies at the back, shoes to the left, cake, Indian snacks (??) and dodgy oil paintings upstairs. It's like the tiniest department store in the world.

How do you do a link without realising?
