OOOH THE SMELL... The number of people who come into the shop literally just to have a 'sniff' is huge. Most of the aroma will be coming from the pipe tobacco jars, which are housed right near the door. This actually caused a problem about 40yrs ago. We used to have glass jars and one day this guy opened the door, reached in and grabbed one of them! I remember one of the owners of the insurance business across the road giving chase, and just as he was catching up, the guy smashed the jar onto the pavement, so we lost the lot. After that my Grandad put wooden bars across the shelves so this would never happen again (and it hasn’t). Lately, we have had an influx of people being fascinated with the 'olde' look of the shop. Seriously, I’m starting to feel like a museum piece (perhaps I start charging an entry fee). It is nice, though, to be appreciated for looking old - the shop I mean, not me!
