March. That is when it is all going to go down. The strains of February are going to resolve sweetly.

Momentous excursion to Carlisle last weekend which consisted primarily of visiting a warehouse filled to the gills with mannequin bits and having a killah time.

It is entirely comforting to know that now that I've taken to chatting to random people while out shooting, its pays off occasionally. We met this chap at an Antiques market in Carlisle whilst picking over his wares. Talked about photography, whereupon he told us of the storefront he has filled with mannequins, directly in front of the warehouse he owns, likewise filled.

His primary business was selling displays, purchased from stores that went out of business. Shelves and racks and bins and things

Made off with a lovely gold hand.

There was also some exploration of Shippensburg and Chambersburg which got us some mint chocolate chip ice cream and cold cheeks. One slightly wrong turn saved the day, stumbling upon the remains of a house near-collapse.

I don't recall exactly where in Carlisle maybe High and Pitt Streets? - it must have been 4 years ago or so, and then he was in the process of selling of all his stock, wish I could be more help. I just remember his name was Dennis.
