I agree Sarah, we all look for our best buys, to be able to go along and view a selection is brilliant. I know a couple of people who have bought from them, and they have been thrilled with quality and choice.
Probably because it's in the Classifieds section of Streetlife Tee P? I'm just guessing though.
