The shopping in Berry is the reason we came for the weekend and this is what makes the town so popular. We’ve been to craft shops, galleries, boutiques and antique and collectibles shops and the markets. At the moment we are resting at a main street cafe having lunch in preparation for the afternoon spree.
As we soak up the rural village atmosphere we watch the horse-drawn carriage toiling its way up and down the village. The footpaths overflow with shoppers fulfilling their dreams. It’s a woman’s heaven and my shopper friends are dreaming of their next bargain. For my part I’m dreaming about a search for a village where every shop sells fast cars, beer, newspapers, magazines and the coffee is served by beautiful young women. Now that’s heaven.
Anyway enough of my dreaming the weekend has been fantastic and everywhere I look I see something entertaining and interesting. It is also calm and relaxing to watch women shop knowing your wallet will never come out of your pocket.
So ‘male colleagues’ if you want to have an enjoyable weekend that won’t disappoint find a few shoppers and take them to Berry. Next time Joan, Lyn and Jan need a driver I’ll certainly be volunteering.
In the meantime back to the shopping.
