What Jessie Did Next...

...being the inane ramblings of a mundane Yorkshire bird.

Eagle Press, the last non-chain stationer/art shop in Wakefield, is closing its doors for the final time next Tuesday. It’s been there as long as I can remember, and can be seen in old photos of the area.

They do however have 50% off everything in the shop, and I’ve taken the opportunity to acquire myself a mount-cutting setup and a load of art stuff for the kids.

The locals are really taking advantage of the cheap sale – there’s sod all office supplies left in there but absolutely tons of pens, pencils, paper, paints, craft stuff and art packs – very very good if you have kids and you’re in the Wakefield area.

    Sic transit gloria mundi (well, tuesdi, I suppose). Sad it’s going, but only because of memories of the place. It was a bloody awful bookshop in the 60s and 70s (the only one in Wakefield) where they made it seem they were doing one a favour by ordering books.
