Wheel in the window

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

I was in my local town of Harrogate to do some shopping recently, and as usual my first stops were in some local Independent shops. We are lucky in Harrogate, in that we do still have a few non-chain retailers, although they are getting harder to find! A whole row of really lovely ‘indies’ closed down recently when a Jamie Oliver ‘Italian’ and a Nandos took over half a block in the centre of town.

One rather wonderful independent retailer we do still have, though, is Magpie on Beulah Street in the centre of town. Regular readers of this blog (Hi, Mum!) will recall that Magpie Greetings were my very very first stockist of Baby Feed Wheels, and have been re-ordering these ‘new baby’ cards (and now our Get Well Soon cards, too) for the last 10-odd years!

You can imagine my delight, then, to see that Magpie have put a pink Baby Feed Wheel in their window display! I still get excited when I see Chiggs Wheels actually for sale in real live shops, so I was skipping down Beulah Street to be part of a window display! Thank you Magpie!
