By Guest blogger, Kerry @ Thighs the Limit

Times are hard, I don’t care what anyone says, but it takes the smallest comment, gesture to raise momentum and keep motivating local independents like me and the compliment I had recently.  Not by a customer but a patriotic retired Visitor, who loves architecture and sign-writing. 

He found my shop front stylish and the fact that I occasionally have Men in Tights to help promote the Shop on Saturdays prompted him to take a photo and send it to me.  His comment “gives life and spirit to the town” uplifted me!
