I spent a weekend in York. The focus was beer and nice chips but there was also room for ghost storytelling and shopping.
I didn’t quite beat Thrifty Gal’s mammoth 11 notebooks (Day 71: henceforth known as notebookgate)*, but I did manage a few from the rather cute shop: http://www.givethedogabone.co.uk/ on Fossgate (incidently just round the corner from one of York’s most haunted pubs, the Golden Fleece)…
I also bought myself a rather delightful umbrella. It has glitter in the handle. This pleases me very much. It is also named after me, check them out: http://www.lindy-lou.co.uk/
*Can’t claim to be so thrifty now, can we?
