A friend of my Mother used to work at Stead & Simpson. Every year we would get a leather 5 year diary. Every. Year.
God bless her, and all who sail in her.
Can't remember any others
The green grocer in East Barnet village?
It was founded by the weisfeld, who later sold out to a private equity group. I'm pretty sure it's dead now </emi>

I fondly remember it's hilariously named 'youth' brand- 'Urban Streetwear'.
I remember my mum buying me a paisley shirt for a wedding from there. And some roll necks.
Oh 80s fashion.
I had quite the collection of roll necks to wear under various sweatshirts...

So everyone called him Moley. Moley's mum (an oft heard phrase at school) ran a shop called Anything Goes!, to whit we would often be heard bounding "Anything Goes,....inlcuding Moley's mum!".

It's not there anymore cos she's dead
Probably the first site I ever bought anything online from.
