Bare faced lie and potential theft.

I took my watch in to get a new leather strap. The watch has 24 carat gold trim around the face and the maker's name (Raymond Weil) stamped on the gold buckle. When the lady who served me returned with my watch,I noticed the buckle was now Silver! When I pointed this out,she said it was always Silver and I was mistaken. I commented that the brand name had magically gone too. She said she'd check it under a different light (?). 5 minutes later the original buckle was back...a miracle! I realised that if they do this enough times with customers,then quite a lot of gold can be gathered. I couldn't believe she tried to tell me I was mistaken about a watch I'd had for 15 years!

Sandal repair

Fantastic job on some very old sandals where the webbing strapping had come away from underneath the footbed. I never thought they could be repaired but with some apparently expensive glue they have been made really secure again and all for £1.50. Absolutely delighted to have found this shop!
