As the shops re-open, let me share a couple of magic words that worked absolute wonders on my family this evening.
I'm now up several pieces of good clothing, a new set of buttons, and I know exactly what's needed when I brave the stores. Not as much as I thought!
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
