So on a dismal bank holiday Monday, In normally Sunny Sussex, when you are tired , and just looking for that little lift / Sparkle in your day. you decide on a little retail therapy, Asda,Tesco,sainsburys, seem to sell everything, just the same as each other…..
So you look for the Independent ” curio ” shop. some where that you know you will be appreciated, and there will be Nice things to look at, gadgets to buy, gizmos to think ” why do i need that ” and up on the first floor ( until the work is done on their new place ) Great coffee & cafe facilities. These are the facilities at the moment. its gonna be good to see how they improve , apparently its about a month or so off
So what added Sparkle to my dull afternoon, a root beer ( proper american ) float with extra marshmallows, and a yummy Big Old Slab of cake… other gorgeous things that ended up on our Table, Big old slices of toast & peanut butter , a smoothie that apparently was lovely, so lovely i didn’t get to try it , and for the little oldmanleslie, a smartie cookie that filled him up so he couldn’t eat his brownie.
So yes, I like the independent, I generally go back to what i enjoy, and if it’s this good ,then I tell people about it.
Add to that the imported food section , and i think the expression is OMG . I came out with a butterfinger bar, not sure why i had to share it but all liked it, space dust that i havent had for years, so i felt like a child again, and some squeezable candy( the like of which i have never tasted )
So in summary, if you are in arundel for a day , for a holiday , or just for and hour or 2 and you fancy something a LOT different then Sparks yard is definitely worth a visit
Just for the record, NOT a sponsored blog, we paid for what we had, it really was THAT good
