It's Christmas Eve...

From  A Christmas Carol, 1843
Hi everyone. What to wear at Bromley Christmas Market:
  • sheepskin boots
  • 3 pairs of wollen socks
  • thermal leggings
  • thermal vest, short-sleeved t-shirt and long sleeved t-shirt
  • woollen polo neck, thick woollen jumper
  • thick maxi faux fur coat
  • 2 thick scarves
  • hat
... and I was still cold!

I'm very fond of most of my customers, but some can get pretty demanding, especially at Christmas.

A young man decided to buy soap for £9.50, and earrings for £27.50, I believe that's £37, but he didn't agree. Then he wanted a discount, and we agreed £35, but then changed his mind about what to buy and liked a rag doll in red/brown, but wanted to change the bedding for the blue colour I had with another doll. Change of mind again, he didn't want the doll, and liked a silver and cubic zirconia ring. In the end he did go for the ring at £25 and stuck with the soap for £9.50 and paid £35! Another satisfied customer.

Have a very happy Christmas.
