understandable they missed it dave - as they say - you don't look at the mantlepiece while you're stoking the fire!
Mores the question - what's it doing outside????

Wish we'd been able to make if for the opening - sadly Eddie's at work and I'm chauffeuring the Carnival Queen :(

Top effort! I hope everything goes great. Are you going to be running a website for the shop?

thanks for all the kind words guys :-)

the past few weeks have been insane, but we managed to install everyting from 10 days of getting the keys (and cram in 3 days for Memorabilia too). The shop still has some work to do on it, but we got what we needed to open up in time.
We got on the front page of the paper for the area and were also featured on the radio too, which was a huge boost.

Have not got all the pics in yet, but here are the one's taken by one of Chloe's sisters to tickle your taste buds and give you an idea;

Clo doing some final checks before opening

Image

a line of people were queuing before the 11am opening

Image

Vader on hand to 'control' the crowd

Image

The UK Garrison guys were a hit literally stopping the traffic to check for rebels.

Image

Ned with Vader:

Image

Chloe's Mum and her friend Pat popped down to be snapped with Vader:

Image

Image

and a drink in the pub at the end of the day, 2 pints later and I was quite happy after not eating all day :lol:

Image

will get some better ones of within the shop.

Dave.

Well done Dave! It all looks cracking!
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
