Amusing Sign And Zip-up Earphones (Or I Knew This Shop Would Be Fun Before I Got Near It)
How would you react to the following sign;



I admit the "We are just around the bend" line is what got me intrigued enough to follow the sign's advice and find the shop.

Owned by Laurence Sharma and his wife Madeleine, "nyo" is a treasure trove of unusual products.  I even bought myself a pair of headphones that you can zip up from there.

The shop passed my "entry" test - it was bright and well spaced out. I also felt able to browse at my leisure (I hate shops where merely pointing at something brings an assistant running as if you are intending to steal items).

Although, I have to admit something.

Laurence Sharma was nearly as fascinating as his shop.  He was friendly and approachable.  He even told me the shop was named after his Burmese Mum (his Dad was from India and he was born in England).

If you are ever in Lutterworth and you want some fun - visit "nyo".  You will come out smiling.
