Opening gambit

We've done our spring cleaning, polished the floor, dusted the shelves and are getting ready for our 2016 opening in just under a fortnight.

One of our acquisitions during the winter was this slightly battered but still serviceable old set of chess pieces. Knight to bishop's 3 anyone? We have also found some new table quiz boxes we expect to be well used as customers test each other's general knowledge while enjoying their coffee.

The daughter of a friend of ours gave us this quick sketch she had made of the coffee shop with the church in the background. We love it and have hung it on the wall inside. There are a few other 'new' acquisitions too. We hope regular customers will enjoy spotting them among the more familiar items.
