Across the top of the shop window is a line of the carrier bags I make from Marks and Spencer's free catalogues.
They are quite high up and taller customers are asked to unpeg themselves a bag to save me getting the ladder out! I also make small paper bags from magazine pages. Hopefully I'll never have to buy bags.
On the other hand I am also using a lot of the pretty printed tissue paper that I bought to sell to wrap purchases nicely. Men in particular appreciate a gift being gift wrapped. Since living in Paris when even a single croissant could be put into a white box with some curly ribbon on top I have appreciated having things nicely wrapped.
My mother is very good at gift wrapping and sometimes the anticipation of seeing a gift nicely wrapped is as good as receiving the gift itself.
