Not sure how many would be aware of this little outfit in Alexandria - I think it is a one man band.

I ordered some paper and developer from him yesterday. Arrived home from a meeting this morning to find the package awaiting me. Hopefully he lets me pay him soon.

What can I say - brilliant. Competitive prices. THIS is how retail should be. Unlike my current and ongoing experience with a nameless Swedish flatpack retailer who has the worst internal systems I have seen like EVA! I could imagine calling the State Rail Authority in the 80s about a lost pen on a train would have been simpler and produced a better result.

:) - don't you mean calling State Rail today about a pen you lost on a train IN the 80's that you now want back :)

I am sure I would still get a better result. :twisted:

Are we talking 1980s, or 1880s?
