Fleur de Lis, Faversham, Opens Shop.
For some time now the Faversham Society has been concentrating on trying to create a museum at the Fleur de Lis, a former public house which requires an enormous amount of restoration. Funds for such work are, of course, always a problem but now this active and enthusiastic society has found that by opening a secondhand shop they are able to boost their income.
Having been there myself I can testify to the number of bargains both on the book- shelves and on the tidily kept tables covered with an assortment of old clothes, toys and curios. Visitors to the shop are very welcome and I am sure the Society would be very pleased to receive any gifts of unwanted household goods. There is also a market for homemade tea cosies, cushions, pottery, toys etc.
