I seem to have given up with the video blog, part of the reason is that i stopped being able to look at my face constantly whilst editing the video. I think from now on I will post what is happening to the business and possibly to me here, and occassionally add pieces of video as I go. So Things that have happened recently at my shop are:
Red Dwarf came to film at the shop, it made for a very different Friday. They changed the interior of the shop making it a Red Dwarf specialist retailer full of props and toys from the series. All the actors were charming and friendly, and I thought the crew were incredibly patient and polite. The Richmond and Twickenham times published a small article about it, which was another added piece of publicity.
Last weekend Guy and I set up a stand at the Richmond Japanese Art Festival, which was lovely. I spent the weekend watching traditional Japanese dances, drumming, marshal arts and the new phenominum of Cosplay. It was very enjoyable and quite profitable.
