The shop looks somewhat forlorn amongst the remnants of snow. But will soon sparkle as it emerges from its hibernation. I find this time very exciting as we see seasonal staff return, pre-season training gets underway, and everyone wears a certain determined look as they race to get everywhere ready for that first day of opening.
|The shop, not much outward sign of life (and only remnants of last week's snow visible)|
One side bears all the remnants of the stock take; areas numbered, and count slips hanging off every shelf and cupbaoard door.
|Tell tale signs of the recent stock take exercise - an essential winter activity|
|New season 'goodies' all ready for unpacking|
|One little rabbit hoping for an early spring!|
