Ir started with a conversation on Twitter about hairnets, though as I wasn’t in at the beginning of that one I couldn’t explain how the topic arose.
Anyway, I mentioned that multi-coloured hairnets are widely available locally, and that we have a wig shop. Evidence of the hairnets was asked for and duly tweeted with a picture snapped on my ‘phone. There was interest in the wigs too.
So last night, on my way round to Octavia’s for dinner, i went into the shop and asked if they’d mind if I took some pictures. The assistant looked a bit nervous, but agreed so long as I didn’t photograph staff or customers, and that I was quick.
It wasn’t my usual camera and I snapped quickly as instructed. It’s not just wigs; there are hair pieces, hair ornaments, brushes and combs, hair dye, curlers, also complete manicure sets.
The place is an Aladdin’s cave.
Celia and I went in there as part of a New Year’s Resoloution to visit local shops we usually go straight by, half the time without noticing. We were enraptured. Such undreamed of treasures on our doorstep. There’s a sitcom waiting to be written set in this shop. Anyone fancy writing it with me?
