Thanks so much to Lilly for gathering all the socks and making such a spectacular shop window!  It gets lots of laughs.  The photographs also belong to Lilly – hers were so much better than mine so I used them.

The window does look a little a box of socks exploded………. but I love it.

Thanks Lilly !
