I can still remember. When I was a little girl, December was one of the most exciting time of the year. Do you know why? Because I used to live in the gloomy Coventry, and instead of merely having the usual drizzling rain, we had sparkling snow instead during winter instead. The sky too was unusually clear in the morning.
Winter was a pretty exciting affair as I don’t have to go to school and I get to go shopping with my mum and dad apart from making little snowman in the snow piled garden in the morning.
Winter was also the time of the year where I get new clothing and thermal wear to keep myself warm with. My parents used to buy me second hand winter clothing as they could not find any affordable ones in the mall.
They’d usually shop for my winter clothing and accessories from the weekly boot sale, and I have to say, there’s not much of a choice over there and the clothing was not exactly cheap either as the sellers knew that we’re desperate for it. We could not choose what fit us best and we also could not have the clothing in our favourite colours too. Sometimes, we get spoil goods and couldn’t return it too.
If only there was Damart back then. It could have save my mum and dad quite a lot as they usually have mega sale by the end of the year, offering varieties of thermal wear with high quality at an affordable price.
