A few weeks back I posted a note about the shop called Wickle on School Hill.
I'm now feeling rather paranoid that the owner is having a laugh at the previous posts regarding his/her shop as, for the last couple of weeks, balls of twine have been on display in the window with a price tag of 25!
Mind you, it has made me giggle every time I pass.

Yes I think they must've seen those posts and have decided to have a laugh at the comments.

It would be worth a chuckle....if the comments posted about "another new Lewes shop selling a ball of string for 35" weren't so spot on

Balls of string now removed from window - Hoorah!
But has Lewes been saved?
I do not want Lewes to be known as the string capital of the UK - it's a bit ropey! How can we stop these "hobby traders" destroying our town?

If ever there was an argument against local traders and for large chain stores - Wickle is it.

Does anyone know why their ball of string is so expensive?

It's probably made from hair that was grown only on the rrrsss of the patagonian toothfish in a remote village in patagonia that is only reachable on the 29th feb.

Well in that case, it's worth every penny! :-)

Magic date again - 29th February!

Its probably so expensive because the owners of Wickle realise that there are so many londoners living in Lewes who are stupid enough to pay the prices.

Spinster, will you be on a husband hunt on the 29th Feb?

The 25 string has been removed from the window and has now been replaced by cotton doorstops (filled with dried beans) - a real bargain at 20. A small cushion is also available for 55.
It's becoming very painful (with laughter) to walk past this joke shop!
Lewesianne - somehow I doubt it!
