Whilst out and about today, begging customers for a final bit of spend before the end of the financial year, my colleague said "have you ever been to the chandlery barge". Well I've clearly been missing out. What a treasure trove of junk, I mean priceless artefacts for skint sailors. Having a general rummage for things like cleats, hatches and winches I came across a big box of these charmers. £12 exchanged across the counter plus a couple of cup cakes for comic relief and the staff, all dressed as pirates, let us leave without walking the plank.
It's one of those places which I've always known about but never been to... Going to be hard to drive past it in the future. :)
