Open for Business!




An awfully long time ago two bloggers started writing to each other and discovered that they had much in common. A very special friendship blossomed and much fun and mischief has been had along the way. Dreams were shared and plans were hatched … after months and months of giggling, worrying, dithering and much custard cream eating, they finally get to “play shops”.
Milly and Dottie (for they are our alter egos) would love you to come and take a peep around. We’ve polished our shoes, starched our aprons and swept away the biscuit crumbs and are hiding away in our stockroom - why don’t you come and join us? Here we are.

I've been to the emporium, and it's my favorite shop in town. I appreciate the fact too, that I can shop in my pj's and slippers, and no one gives me the stink eye.

Oh what a lovely place - well done you two! Can't afford anything at the moment (weddings in Rome and preparing for winter wiping us clean) but come autumn I think I may be popping by to do some early Christmas shopping :o)

Good Luck to you both!

Rowan said...

Good luck with your emporium:) I've just attempted to buy the Monica Dickens book but the Paypal payment doesn't seem to be making it to you, could you check whether or not it has arrived? I've never had a problem before so maybe a glitch at your end?

OhSoVintage said...

I thought I was going mad, I was sure I had seen this on Michelle's blog but now all is revealed! Good luck in your new venture, Kim. The website is great.
