Our youngest customer
We think we may already have achieved some sort of a record - one of our most regular customers started coming in before he was born. Now, most definitely our youngest customer is the delightful (well, difficult to tell really as he has been blissfully asleep on most of his visits) Oscar, aged about one week. His Mum (Sophie) came into the shop a couple of weeks ago, heavily pregnant, and then came in the following week with new-born Oscar to have a coffee in the courtyard garden. She came in the shop this morning, as did Oscar's two older brothers Fin and Barney (and gave us permission to mention him on the blog). They also seem to be more at home in the children's book room than we are. On being asked about having a new baby brother, Barney (aged 5) commented "It's Nice". Early days of course.
