  1. Paper bags

    When I occasionally take home work waste for recycling, I always remove my address and any distinguishing marks. The same goes for anything sent to my hone address but with a work name, you can't be too careful.
  2. Customer came in with a standard UL054. I cut a new one, but when I turned over his key, it said JMA not Silca, then I realized it said JAM, not JMA. Is this a "fake".
  3. Paper bags

    Talking about packaging, whilst it is a shame that laces, padlocks and other items come in single use blister packs, I've also have no doubt that if they did not sales would plummet. Customers expect it from a presentation and ease if use point of view.
  4. Cousinsuk.co.uk. great website. Gleaves and co (or son) for counter sales. Central London. Clerkenwell.
  5. Clock repairs

    I don't repair clocks, I did in the past, but it just wasn't worth it. ( I've no doubt someone on the forum is now going to say he makes thousands in clock repairs, but it just didn't work out for me.) Rather annoyingly when I did a google search for clock repairs in my area, it always came back to my website, is this because google are picking up the phrase " I don't repair clocks! " on my website. I am reluctant to drop it from my website. Mike.

    Welcome to the forum.
  7. Easter weekend

    No harm in trying, but I'll be amazed if they agree to pay. When the train co "rebuilt" my shop, we were discussing the front, they suggested a small window. ( it is a very small shop), I said I wanted brick wall . got a brick wall. I've had windows before, just a complete mare when some shit bag decides to smash it.
  8. Easter weekend

    If you find yourself in the Vauxhall area, feel free to pop in for a tea.
  9. Easter weekend

    Most difficult part of church, on a Good Friday service, is not shouting out. "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy!" During the reading of the Passion.
  10. Easter weekend

    If you open and make a decent/acceptable amount of money, then you were right to open. If I felt I was going to do maybe £100, I'd have opened.
  11. Easter weekend

    Sweet F A, would be absolutely no trade at work. Would like a complete day of doing F A, but my wife has committed the whole family to a 3pm church service.
  12. Taskmaster

    Really enjoying "Action Team" by/with Tom Davis, he Also writes and stars in "Successville", so I'll be giving it a try.
  13. Spot the Mistake?

    Is it that they failed to show an ethnically diverse, gender fluid police force?
  14. Recently been doing quite a few jobs for a well known charity. Nice and straight forward, didn't ask for payment, but they got me a Sainsbury's gift cards. Shame, I was really hoping for a go on one of their Haitian prostitutes really!
  15. Hi all

    Welcome to the forum.
  16. I guess the answer is "Bloody no!" Probably one more for the Welsh market than the English. Make your own joke.
  17. A couple of things I noticed at M & S

    Just helping my mum. More of an aldi guy myself
  18. Customer ( either foreign or possibly a speech impediment.) came in on Friday. I could of swore he asked " have you got any bollocks?" "Yes I've got a lovely pair of bollocks, thanks for asking!" I replied, being honest. "No, wollocks!" I sold him a wallet.
  19. Three for a tenner? Really?

    Wish I had an ivory tower to look down from. Never mind I've kind of got a golden limousine.....well a fifteen year old blue zafira, close enough.
  20. loop king laces

    Got some in, I like the look and the packaging. As I said, my customers are commuter based so not convinced they will sell well, but they add interest to what can be a boring display. The back instructions both made me laugh and feel really old. This is my idea of sharing it on social media though.
  21. loop king laces

    I'll definitely will give them a try. If they are aimed more at trainers than casual, does that mean 114/90cm are better sellers than the more business like 75cm, that's a bit of a shame as my shop is very commuter based. As for the price nearly every product range has a place for a high end range, whether it be shoe laces, umbrellas or watch straps.
  22. Snow Man

    Maybe he wanted to go dogging?
  23. Forum Upgrade

    Well , You can have a heart .
  24. Forum Upgrade

    The "like" button leaves a little heart. I know it's not politically correct for me to say this but that's a bit effeminate.
