In the Shop Window and Elsewhere-in-Arcadia
Bought recently from a seaside town of many chimney pots and for immediate sale 'In the Shop Window' of my stall-on-a-virtual-b-road www.andrewsofarcadia.com, a rare and possibly unique Hook Salesman's Wallet from W. Woodfield & Sons of Redditch dating from the late Victorian Era. Along with a number of old London fishing tackle shop catalogues in the cardboard-box-under-the-counter-Madam, you-only-need-ask and some close ups of two reels bought from a gentleman in the vaults of town earlier this week and which are for immediate sale at 'Just in, Sir'.
