Hello there, I’m Susie. I started out as the Saturday person back in 1999 and just stayed. Through those many years, I have put in frequent guest appearances both in the shop and during festival time.  However, I now wander around the shop on a more regular basis, attempting to be helpful to our many lovely customers. As well as this, I also fly, not quite like the Wicked Witch of the West or indeed Dracula... I am much more Penny from the ‘Come fly with me.’


In these days and nights I spend traversing the globe, I try to catch up on my reading, interspersed with a few jaunts into whichever town or city I happen to be in.
