Sorry, no idea  :(
I went there today to buy an odd 60cm of something I was short of, to find the place heaving, and the closing down sale notices up. Apparently it was in her newsletter/email, but I don't get that.

I guess it lasts until it's all gone or the lease runs out? She is retiring. That's all I know.

Reductions on everything, print fabrics are at 50% but minimum cut of anything 1metre.

Just thought anyone within distance might like to know

Eh? I am the person that bought a measly nothing at the Road Show. Cup of tea and slice of lemon drizzle don’t count.

It appears she IS selling the shop as a going concern so maybe, just maybe, someone will buy it.
