Just a Little Souvenir...

Although the BBC filming has come to an end in Shepton Mallet, most of the crew haven't left town yet...
Today they had set aside the day to clear the unsold produce from the shops that they created. All the groceries were just 50p each, so it was a great opportunity to get a few bargains, but also some souvenirs of this wonderful production.
Many items had been re-packaged with authentic graphics from each period in history. These were the items I was able to buy first thing this morning before I opened up my shop.
Throughout the day the team added more and more props and other bits and bobs to the market stall outside the grocers shop. I was able to run out and buy several ostrich feathers, as modelled here by the hard working Paul.
Then, very excitingly, a rail of clothes from the wardrobe dept. was added to the selection. Yes, I managed to bag a few, including the punk t-shirt that I showed in my previous post! (I know what I'll be wearing to work tomorrow! ;-)) Heehee!

In other ways though I have been trying to get back to normal in my shop after all the excitement over the summer.
I've arranged some new displays in my windows...

And had a sort through stock on the shelves...

As well as adding some new items here and there.


If the weather holds for Sunday, I intend to have a summer clearance at the Flea Market held at the Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet.
And just as a reminder, my shop will be closed for a week, until September 6th, as I need a short break.
Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend,
