"Whammy...sainos local Putney"

Nicely put Nick! Whammy indeed!

This time Nick's back with a professional arrangement, from his Sainsbury's local.

Putney Local

"Good choice for a small store but no pride in their display, tut!"

It does lack some quality straight lines (which you'd expect from the traditional display), but i personally think there is something in stacking them high and making the baker engage in a game of Jenga to get the flour they want.

I also love the fact that Sainsbury's see them as the "top shelf" items of the baking world. Just like the magazines are kept out of reach of the young ones, the flour needs to be up there too.

Even though I find this a humorous display, what is granny going to do? She's not going to be able to reach up there and if she can, will she be able to handle the pressure of Jenga??? I think a letter needs to be sent to some health and safety bod.

As Nick said, a nice range for a small store, but due to the dangers for Gran, It gets marked down.

This is serious.

    The email arrives, it has an attachment, the subject says "flour arrangement", i get excited. "Now we are cookin'" I think, to find that someone thinks that my nod to baking week means that cup cakes become flour arrangements.

    Some might say the people behind this are crazy, and i would agree, but as flour has to be in the mix, they are a good kind of crazy.
