The Pot Spot

It’s going to be an interesting weekend. Because on Sunday the 26th of January, Australia Day, according to the notices in the window, the Pot Spot will finally close down.

The Pot Spot is a shop down on the corner of our street. They sell plant pots and other assorted garden objects. Gnomes, dragons, frogs, that kind of thing. But last July they announced they were going out of business. A closing down sale, to get rid of all their stock and close up shop.

Apparently the closing down sale was incredibly successful, because the date for closing moved from August to November, into December… and just after Christmas, a new sign appeared painted on the window proclaiming: "This is it! Closing January 6th!"

When January 6th arrived, so, miraculously, had a number 1 in front of the 6. And when the 16th arrived, the 1 had changed into a 2. So now we wait with bated breath to see if the Pot Spot will indeed close on the 26th, or if it will live on into February. Stay tuned…
