bag lady
Well the wait is finally over, yes Cottage Industry is OPEN FOR BUSINESS! and HML sends big congratulations and much love to the proprietress, really a top drawer achievement. You couldn't have kept us away on opening day and truth be told we figured that if we made it in around afternoon tea time there would probably be cake, and she's tops at an afternoon tea, quite unbeatable. So...were we surprised by it's charm, well laid out wares, delightful displays and general genius? No of course not, we expected nothing less from the Queen of Durstonia.

BUT we were surprised and beyond delighted by our carry bags. Especially Beck, who yelped, squealed and clapped her hands in delight when she realised she was holding a copy of her treasured HIT CITY weekend Hindustan Times IN HER HANDS! (Indiaphiles note that's none other than Ajay Devgan and Kajol, bottom left, starring in the controversial Sangini Diamond ad campaign... hena!)
And even though it was thoroughly unnecessary we cheekily pressed miss penpen for another special hand-made paper carrier because we loved the Hindi handles so much...

thankfully she graciously obliged our greed, and even fed us hot tea and fresh muffins!
