Verity's hard at work packing up stock ready for its being put into storage when Carbootsale Library closes. The boxes are a bit ropey to say the least: Verity's had to tack most of them together with umpteen layers of brown tape.
"I know the storage company provides free boxes but I'd have thought they'd be a bit better than these," I say.
"Oh, they provide brand new boxes. I've been told that I've got to use the ones they used for Carbootsale and Catty because they've nowhere else to put them."
"Oh no, not when there's quality material like this for them to foist on us."
