Little Box for a Little Flower...
Last week a gentleman came into The Red Door to purchase a Belle and Boo badge. He explained that is was an apology gift for a lady and asked if I had a box for it to sit in. He told me that he makes origami flowers and wished for the badge to sit on the flower. Our gift boxes are very small and I suggested that they may not be appropriate for housing such a creation. Much to my surprise, he told me that is was perfect and offered up quite a challenge. 
At the end of the day, as I was about to shut shop, the gentleman reappeared and presented me with my very own box-sized origami flower. He had sat in the library at the top of Victoria Street and made it for me. 
It made my day, week, perhaps even year!
