The volunteer salesperson heard me exclaim over a very reasonably-priced doll's house in the charity shop. She was with me in an instant.
"We're going to see my granddaughter in Italy. She'd love it."
"There we are then"
"But Husband will have a fit if I go home with this and say we've got to get it in the car."
"It comes apart."
"Yes, I'm sure it does. You've got to take it. She'll love you for it."
I bite my lips and see another woman eyeing it up.
"Okay, I'll take it! You're sure it comes apart?"
"Yes. I expect so."
And what do you know? It did. (After a bit of muttering and grumbling about sales persons.)
