New Season - New suite
This year has found me wandering about in Barkers new store in Northallerton. As much as I have loved my green chesterfield in the guests lounge I guess I had to put it into retirement in our own room . I will never part with it but it was getting rather more to look at and not to sit on. It was hand made in York by a company called Hamilton Ross who don't exist any more ...if only they did I have thought so many time. I bought it around the time Nicholas was born 36 years ago and in those days you got maternity allowance to buy baby items . That is where the money went. Babies don't need new, they need something that will do . The pram he had, had been used by not only my mother to wheel me about as a baby but the hen to hatch a clutch of chickens and possible the cat to have her kittens. I dusted it from where it had been kept in the granary and Nicholas was put in it ..... Anyway back to the settee. It was going hard to find something to equal my chesterfield. There was so many to choose from ... so many choices . Barkers is just this amazing store.... Finally I have chosen a red buffalo leather one it came with chairs too. So next time you come to see us you will have a very swish settee to sit on.
