Re: South West LHF

It's a shame. A you say, a vicious circle. Thing is, its a bloody popular market. Saturday was crazy busy for us. Didn't stop till well into the afternoon. Sunday certainly wasn't too bad either.

Re: Clarification please

Tod/Griff - Absolutely, I couldn't agree more. The original question was posed after a number of my customers had made mutterings to the point questioned. Running a society myself, I know how difficult it can be to change bad habits. Griff - that crappy plastic coated leather is one of my pet hates :(

Re: Late/non-payments

Small claims can be done online as mentioned above.
It's a fairly painless process to be honest.
We had to use it a short while ago when a trader tried to fleece us.
The online link settled it to our satisfaction.

Re: Queen Anne shopkeeper's costume

I'd be inclined to say they've labelled it 100 years too early.
The hat is erring on Regency styling so this would fit. Hopefully one of the many milliners on here will be able to assist better?
