Yesterday I met up with an old friend who I've not seen for yonks and we tried a newish veggie cafe in the old town called Green Ginger, not surprisingly it's in the Land of Green Ginger area. Had a lovely slice of cheese-cake with our coffee and I really loved the groovy artwork on the walls. The art was very Yellow Submarine in style.
I hadn't been in the town for a wander or a shop for years so my friend took me in Hepworths arcade which hadn't changed much, still had Dinsdales joke shop were I used to spend much of my pocket money as a child buying sneezing powder and the like. There was a new and interesting looking Kimono shop but it was shut, Beasleys still had a good supply of vintage clothes and I bought a small plain black bag to embellish.
The main purpose of the trip was to visit a fabric shop which is closing down in June, the shop is Dream Fabrics on Percy Street. I got quite a few bits of fabric as you'll see from this pic and also little gadgets to make origami style fabric things which you can use to decorate clothes or accessories.
