I enjoy visiting shop because it is independent and the kind man who owns it is very helpful and has time for each customer. He has a diverse range of stock which I appreciate, including specialist materials for artists such as low tack tape and artists pencils which saves me time and effort on journeys further afield and also saves money, because when i visit a specialist art shop I always buy more than I intended. He will also order books within a day. He is very useful for all traditional stationary and also has pretty stuff too. Yesterday I urgently needed some high quality photo matte inkjet paper and he had the perfect packet. I might have paid less at PC world or on the internet, but thanks to him I got what I wanted locally, immediately, and saved on fares, postage and time. This counts for a lot. He is threatening to retire, catch this gem of a man and his increasingly rare rare type of shop while you can.
