The Smell

A Memory of Westgate on Sea.

I remember each time we went into the shop we got the smell of the paraffin , even now if I smell it it reminds me of his shop.
ps you can keep the big DIY stores only things in packets staff who have no knowledge .
take care

Comments & Feedback

Yes the smell. I remember nails were bought by weight. You could go in not knowing what you wanted and be advised. Not like now. Shears were sharpened. If you blunted a screwdriver they would re profile it while you waited. Recycling at its best really.
