Small Business Saturday
The Thoughtful Gardener, who has moved down to Backfold from the Castle.
This shop was once part of the Five Star department of Richard Booth's bookshop, so called because it first specialised in military books, though when I first went in there it had become the science fiction department. Later it was divided downstairs, with Greenaways Books in one side and various different businesses in the other. For a long while it was the pet shop where my dog used to get her pig's ears - and other treats! She would sit about in the alley way while I was working in the Children's Bookshop (now an antique shop) and indicate to anyone who stopped to give her a fuss that they could buy her a treat if they wanted!
