Look up

What we are missing in the UK retail sector is the power to sum up a shop’s wares by bolting on an oversized model of such on to the roof, New Zealand is very good at this.

I have witnessed crayfish, green mussels, a hand with a garage door remote control, a golf ball, apples, a trout, all oversized, moulded and mounted.
