Well I'm still hyperventilating. I picked up my daughter this afternoon to look after her whilst my wife went out, and walked home via a few shops. The first half-dozen yielded nothing, and then I popped into one I don't visit very often - partly because nothing is priced, and they assess how wealthy they think you look at the checkout.

Downright cheap Cleverleys.
