even they admit it

5000 items whilst stocks last

surely as soon as they sell one item they’ll have less than 5000 items.  which is probably why they needed the asterisk

7 night smorgasboard

we’ll ignore the question of whether it should be smorgasbord rather than smorgasboard.  i liked how it was a 7 night one assuming you only eat between the hours of 4.30pm and 9pm each day.

and the shop was only open 6 nights a week …

a very cool bookshop

a veritable Aladdin’s cave of books about Aladdin’s caves (and other things)

smile mart

we don’t have whsmith in new zealand.  that explains the empty table i suppose

i’ve shown you this shop window before.  i love it as it’s absolutely packed with things and they’ve scrawled the names of the products on the outside of the windows with nice words.  like lovely crockery

as i went past the other day i noticed they’ve started selling anti virus which i assume is a computer thing.   and they now think their paper parasols are cool.

and they sell silks (plural) on rolls

shops for everyone

we stayed a night in a place called whitianga over christmas

100104_850_img_7565.jpg

they have shops for everyone – the kids shop is next to a ladies’ fashion shop next to a blokes shop.

pretty useless photos i’m afraid !

priceless ($6.90)

100513_850_img_0116.jpg

does it have a price or not ?  and it looks like you can pay with a degreaser if you haven’t got $6.90

lovely crockery

it’s all about the presentation.

perhaps these signs weren’t actually written by the shop keepers and were actually graffiti feedback from passing shoppers ?   twitter has a lot to answer for.
