Mitre 10. And in Nelson, both stores are about the same size, and the garden department, on par with each other. I think M10 has more interesting pots, whereas plants may be slightly cheaper at Bunnings. Bunnings' sausage sizzle wasn't in use on Saturday.

Page & Blackmore, the only independently-owned bookshop in Nelson, kindly lent us window space to promote our (Meg and friends') exhibition. When I approached the window this evening, a man was looking carefully at the display, stepped back and read the poster. Needless to say, I was pleased.

Mitre 10 hardware store is a New Zealand-owned chain, and Meg gets Gray Power discount so it's her first port of call for hardware, cleaning, and garden needs. Usually there is a group selling sausages, (grilled right there, with some onions), as fundraising; school groups, sport teams, special interest groups. Today was Bird Club's turn. Meg was pleased they not only had brown bread, but did not automatically butter all their bread. I was just happy to be allowed to get one between meals.
