Girlie customer - 1.jpg

This young lady called in today for the first time in over 20 years. She had such nostalgic memories as like many of our customers she would come with her mam when she was a school girl buy beads to make earrings etc and Mrs Grossmans stickers. Well she was so pleased to find The Geogian Window still going strong. after all these years.  This time our little glass animals caught her attention and she couldn't resist.

All the way from Sedgefield . County Durham
