    Does this go over or under one's Van Dutch baseball cap? More seriously who are Morrison's? Your banana stand looks like a great idea. Does one need to be a greengrocer to have access to such knowledge?

    Indeed they are. Got mine from the Aylesbury branch.

    When I had a look they had that one for £2.99 and another with a chrome fruit basket underneath for £3.99 - might be useful for catching residual earwax. :smashin:

    Dammit! Aylesbury's in the country so we can't go there as locals tend to throw rocks at our Range Rover. It's pretty tricky these days to venture beyond North London. Sadly, Morris's and the banana stands must remain a distant dream.

    There are morrisons places cropping up all over the place, and if you can't venture beyond norf laaandon, then there are many, many, many more in london.....
    stratford, chingford, queensbury, enfeild, sidcup, hatch end...... all of these are morrisons stores.... here is a link to make me look legitimate....

    Many thanks Steve. The banana stand shall be mine, I found a Safeway store within Range Rover country, Camden Town to be precise, so we'll all pop on our green wellies and venture forth forthwith, all five of us.

    Apples and pears...stairs!

    Steve,

    Where did you get yours from? I went to the Letchworth branch at the weekend, but couldn't see them:(. Maybe I was looking in the wrong place...

    In a slight diversion, I decided that a banana stand was just a bit too boring for me, and my thinking was this. What better to store headphones than... a head? In a moment of "inspiration" I bought one of those ceramic "phrenology head" models from ebay, and this was the result...

    Must remember to check sizes in future!!! :oops: but still, a fiver well spent!

    I was visiting Northampton yesterday. There is also a Morrisons over at WGC, Black Fan road; though I've never been there so no idea of it's size or stock.

    I am pretty sure that's where I first saw the idea too.
