The new name this shop is called is not Craft Stop but is Craft Spot as you can see in the photograph of the press report.

As Eric and Ernie might have said....
All the right letters, not necessarily in the right order.

Good luck to Sharon Marshall and her staff, and a happy retirement to Steve Miller, now he has finally escaped the traffic fumes of St Botolph's Street.

Congratulations by the way, I can come in for my Conqueror paper now, like I used to get with Steve.
By the way no relation to Julie Young on the Council are you?

How can they get it so wrong? But thanks for the kind words, and your Eric and Ernie comment made me laugh.

Thankyou AVPG, we still have Conqueror paper.
Sorry but there's no connection to Julie Young - I think she must be a lot older than me!!

Glad some of the words made you laugh Sharon.
I know that would be easy for you because Julie Young never tries to smile much and you do manage and with a nice face there's good proof of that in that photograph.
Good luck wishes for you Sharon.

Sharon
Always happy to oblige, especially when someone has performed a public-spirited act such as keeping an important shop going.
That Eric and Ernie sketch with André Previn must be one of the greatest TV sketches of all time. You should be able to find it on Youtube.
Once again, I wish you every success with your business.

I have no idea why AVPG compared Sharon with Julie Young. Maybe it was Julie's habitual smile. Contrary to popular belief, Julie Young does smile often, but the Gazette's library of pictures of her all show her with a severe or pained expression, which is unfortunate. Anyway, i'm sure Julie and Sharon would get along fine if they met. Maybe Craft Spot can offer her a leaflet-printing service for the next time she stands for election.
