Our Mystery Day Trip with North Star Travel on Tuesday 9th May 2017 took us to Norwich.. The coach dropped us outside John Lewis. With such a temptation, this just had to be our first port of call so that we could visit our favourite departments. After the Electrical Department to see what was new we went to the Haberdashery Department - the biggest John Lewis Haberdashery Department I have ever seen.
Posting this 'find' on Facebook, one of my long ago knitting pals commented that the same Tuesday at John Lewis was her knitting club day and I could have joined them. It would have been good to have seen her again.
Dave and I decided to visit the shops, including the famous market, rather than the castle, cathedral and other places of interest which we has seen on previous visits to the city. Dave was looking for new polo shirts and trousers while I was looking for a birthday gift having had no inspiration after weeks of searching. Finding clothes in Dave's size was impossible. However, Dave did find the perfect gift in the form of a bookmark in St Gregory's Antiques & Collectables, a silken cord with a pewter owl at one end and a pewter Tudor rose at the other. The recipient is an avid reader and is also very fond of owls.
