My favourite things

The last twenty six years have gone by in a flash – we’re now in semi-retirement after having a gift and coffee shop in Helensburgh, stocking a variety of Scottish gifts, jewellery and home-baking.  How we managed all the years of doing seven days a week I’ll never know.  It seems really surreal now.

The town has had a makeover, courtesy of Argyll and Bute Council, and now is the time for the new owners of our shop at 89 West Clyde Street, Helensburgh to put their stamp on our old business premises.  Argyll Chandlers Ltd are targeting their business firmly at the local yachting/sailing fraternity – and, when we were driving round the Rosneath peninsula yesterday, we got a quick reminder of just how many folks own and berth their boats in the area.

The weather’s much improved today in time for the official opening of the shop, so we’re wishing Bill, Christine and family much success.
