    Improved tenfold since it was the local shop.

    Not knowing whether it was ever a local shop, I don't know if your guess is right!

    If you are right and this was the local shop then, Wow.

    The Post Office closed in 2004, I believe.

    Is the old postmaster still on this mortal coil? I didn't like the man, always came across as slimey. And, when we lived up on Baxter Green, the ex once caught his daughter peeping thru our letterbox, cancelled the papers after that.

    That's the one, the lovely (so, so lovely!) building on the corner of Jerningham St and Doxey Rd, Castletown.
    Being a bit of a Stafford newbie, I had no idea it was ever a Post Office.

    Thanks for joining in.

    That's lovely. I used to live next door to it, before they built the new house behind it.

    Shameless plug time!

    Order a commission soon, and you illustration can be with you (or a gift for another), in time for Christmas.

    Here's the homes and lines process.

    New to the h&l family. All framed up and pre-bubble wrapping, before its short journey to North Wales

    Wyn, a lovely little shop in Conwy.

    Last drop-off before Christmas.
    This time a dinky edition of the fantastic Cup A Cha.
    If you're out and about in Stafford shopping, then you must take a breather and if you can, pop here for a drink, some food and great service!

    Had great service from LavenderFlorist, towards the end of last year. So, a thanks to them!
    Not fully coloured-up but anyway, here's their shop.

    Not quite Stafford, but close enough.
