Oh yes, there have been a number of incidents in Decemeber at the shop. Weirdly only Steve has been a witness to the nightmareish events.
It all started when after much nagging by me, Steve decided to purchase a new Christmas Tree for the shop. Previously when he was at Wolverhampton the Christmas tree was like a horror tree. It was excellent with a skull at the top instead of the usual boring fairy or star. It had insects, chains, black knobly decorations - not a piece of sparkle or tinsel in sight! This year the horror tree was again going to make an appearance but with one thing and another the tree never made it to the shop from the house so a new purchase was made.
This particular day, 8th Decemeber, Steve went out and choose and purchased the tree himself and put it up and decorated it on his own with no input or help from me (and i love decorating christmas trees). When he finally finished he posted the following photograph on facebook along with the caption "Absolutely shattered, just finished putting up the shop Christmas decoration"
and its ever since then that the nightmares have begun!
On the 11th December, another photograph was posted along with the following comments " Emergency services called after Christmas tree falls on Leprechaun" Indeed the little Leprechaun that lives in the pen pot at Black Fish had been left out on the table and been crushed beneath the enormous tree. It was hit and miss for a while as to whether he would survive.
A little later that day, a further post appeared on the facebook page for Black Fish Collectables stating;
" BREAKING NEWS.
Fight breaks out in local weird shop. The Leprechaun pencil started a fight with the Sheep pen as he accused him of pushing the Christmas tree on him, then the monster pen got involved. Order was restored when the Skull pencil sharpener arrived"
Official Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Black Fish Collectables was marred with trouble. A very angry Darth Vader attacked the crowd for not attending the premier of the new Star Wars movie. Luckily an oversized E.T , on steroids was on his way home, when he pointed out that he was not actually a man at all. Darth Vader was last spotted in Poundland buying a bigger lightsaber. So will the rest of the festive season continue peacefully or will further nightmare incidents amongst the items at Black FIsh Collectables - the weirdest shop in Rugeley and indeed in Staffordshire.
