June Theme Day: My Corner Shop


Sometimes I find it difficult to find a suitable subject for the CDP theme days, not so with this one! I knew right away that Steven's Golf Shop would be my choice.

This shop is literally around the corner from where I live, and my husband and I probably spend more time here than any other shop in the area. Over time we've gotten to know both Steve and the others who work there. They are always friendly and now even know us by name. Steve's is locally owned and operated and I usually try to find what I need here before going to Edwin Watts. I'd much rather my money goes to a real person rather than a corporation.

Take a look at the other cities around the world participating in today's theme day!

I'll bet there won't be too many golf shops in the portal! That's a great idea!

Don't forget to copy and past the required code from the portal (under "members" then "theme days") or you won't get listed as participating. 8^)

Nice post. I like th e idea of the corner golf shop.

lynn said...

Must be great for you to have the corner shop so close, selling things you are most interested in.

Chris said...

You know, I wanted to take up golfing last year after I closed my store, but it's a good thing I didn't since I have had all these rotator cuff problems. I swear, however, that I am going to do so once I get it figured out!

For theme day, I'm showing a bit of my former store (since it fits the bill) if you're interested. . .

bonne idée, il est en effet plus préférable d'aller dans une petite boutique où l'on connaît tout le monde. Si j'ai choisi le centre commercial, c'est que depuis son existence, les petits magasins ont disparus ;o(

good idea, it is more preferable to go in a small shop where we know everyone. If I chose the mall is that since its existence, small shops have disappeared ;o(

It's great you two have an activity that you both enjoy!

Per Stromsjo said...

I fully agree. Supporting the local store makes a lot of sense.
