Yesterday I set up shop in Petersfield's Lavant Street as part of the Christmas Festivities. It was minus five degrees and certainly the coldest fair I have ever endured. But the customers, bless them, braved it and bought their Christmas presents - sometimes for themselves, sometimes for others! And thank you One Tree Books, seen behind me, for the life-giving cups of tea!
The huggy girls embraced the cold!
This dolly, keeling over with the numbness of frost bite, is keeping that British stiff upper lip expression while she waits to be sold and put into someone's nice warm shopping bag!
