Posted by Stuart Lennon on

Hello from Charlie & Spice. NewsMay is almost half-done! "Quaran-time" is weird.   Being British, best I start with a weather update. We’re having a brief dally with Spring here in Cyprus, although most days, it’s pretty summery. High twenties during the day and mid teens at night.

Silly Season

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

I have been at this retail lark for a while now, and as a consequence, the moment the leaves start turning, I’m thinking about stock.

We take pride in offering the fastest and friendliest service that we can, every...
