Smiffy Sez: Nurse…


Ashleigh & Burwood oil lamp

A lady rang to speak to Kelly, about a lamp she had bought from us. I called out to Kelly “can you come to the phone Kelly, it’s the lady with the lamp?”

Tony heard me and said “that must be Florence Nightingale then!”

About Beryl Maughan Hankin

Guru is an independent fair trade boutique which has been active for almost five decades in Darlington, UK. I work there with my best friends Tony and Colin. In addition to my other duties, I manage social media for the shop and its spin-off activities and for myself. Growing up back in the 1940s I never could have imagined such a thing as being able to communicate with people all over the world via the internet but here we are doing just that. To quote Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead, "What a long strange trip this has been" - and for us at least, it's not over yet! (Guru Boutique's logo is based on a Mayan harvest deity).
