Ladies and Gents

You are cordially invited to the opening of Nina's - the coolest clothes, shoes and accessories shop in the entire world (and I have that on good authority, I'm not just saying it.

Notice the olde shoppe front look with wooden criss cross beams and a bell that goes RING RING whenever someone opens the door. The shop is HUGE, on one floor, with plenty of room between the clothes racks and shelves for scooters, wheelchairs, husbands, kids etc.

Towards the back of the shop you'll find a creche for your kids and for the other halves where they can play on the Wi-Fit, watch MTV on the huge plasma screen and DVDs if they want to. There are also a selection of toys, games etc.

In the middle of the shop are 4 dressing rooms, lovely big rooms with those wooden swing doors and plenty of room in side and lots of hooks to hang up clothes in.

We accept cash, credit/ debit cards/ cheques/ money in kind :shock:

And as for the contents? It's up to you :)

    Oh, Nina please could we have some of those lovely floaty dresses which hang so beautifully. Also some Empire line dresses for those of us who have a flippin' Empire stuck round our middles. I see these on other people, but can I find them to buy? Not on your nellie! Where do they come from?

    A mixture of plain colours and flowery ones should please all, and of course the handbags and shoes/sandals to match........would be wonderful.

    I thought you were going to be challenging customers! Help yourselves. Don't forget the longline necklaces to match the dresses, Annie and Snowball, you're the same size as my daughter!

    And I forgot to mention the Franchise Val's Cafe in here for calorie free cakes :)

    So plenty of trousers, size 6/8, inside leg 36'', please.

    Do have coats and jackets? I would love just once in my life to have a jacket that I do'nt have to turn the sleeves under :( Even the so call petite ones are to long. :lol:

    Oh to be a couple of inches taller, then the top shelf of the kitchen cupboard would no longer be a mystery to me. :roll:

    Nina, what a great idea for a thread :!: I hope there will be a branch of Nina's opening in Derby :!: :D

    I would like a machine which scans your body and takes exact measurements, and then like magic the clothes appear which fit perfectly. This would save so much time and effort. Usually, I have to take two sizes of everything into the fitting rooms, and I find clothes vary a lot.

    Morning! Lots of lovely customers already!

    Rehab,

    Of COURSE we do lingerie and men's clothes too because the majority of wimmin in here will be buying clothes for their OHs (I have to buy all my hubby's clothes). Try to leave the ladies' stuff tidy :shock:

    Val, Pixy

    You'll find the summer clothes by the door and shoes in the middle of the shop - all sizes and whatever you like :) Not opened a Nina's on the ship yet, but that's a definite possibility. Might have to get someone else to run it though! Val, your order is on its way :)

    Anne

    Are you a supermodel?! size 6/8 and very very tall? No matter, we have clothes to fit you and you can try them on while we look on, enviously!

    Snowball

    What's a holister??? Might have to order you some in but that's no trouble!

    Ironic

    We have summer jackets in, and we have some very petite sizes. If you can't find any to fit, will get my mum to alter them for you, she's very talented.

    Joan

    What a cool idea - a machine to take exact measurements! Will look into it. But don't let Joan fool you everyone, she has a lovely figure :wink: I have it on authority.

    Oneday

    There is a franchise Val's at the back, right next to the play area for children and partners.


    PHEW it's hard work all this shop malarky. Think I might have to take in more staff so I can just sit and count the money!

    Bras. Proper ones, that support my airships without digging grooves into my shoulders, yet are as wispy as those advertised on the telly by skinny minnies with fried eggs for a chest. I dream of a Rigby and Peller but I refuse to spend £85 on one.

    Jewellry: lots of Georg Jensen, please.

    Silk-covered, highly-embellished crocs would be good. I can only wear crocs now, nothing else is as good, apart from my walking boots. They look silly in the summer with linen.

    Kipling, Radley and Mulberry bags. All sizes and colours. One of ech should be enough.

    I like your shop, ninakang! DD

    Love the sound of your shop Nina

    Love the idea of Radley bags but could you
    mark them up around a tenner as the
    extortionate prices they are in other stores
    are out of the question. Just cos they have
    a doggy tag on :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:
    What's that about. :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

    I would like some trousers that fit too and some
    tops as well.
    M & S have started adding inches to their clothes -
    longer tee shirts and longer trousers, even the ones
    labelled 'short' I have to shorten.
    Not good - mind you maybe
    its my fault for being 4ft 11ins. :!:

    Ooooh, a personal shopping service! Who's up for the task?!

    Nice to see so many lovely ladies, although it looks like Rehab beat a hasty retreat!

    If you're going to spend that much time in our knickers :shock: then you're going to have to join the staff, Rehab. I appoint you Resident Telling You That You Look Fabulous Man. Every store should have one.

    I love this shop! Which is saying something because I hate clothes shopping! Right, where are the long length trousers please and the glamorous but very comfortable shoes.
    Might just stop for a cuppa first though - hope the toast and marmite in this Val's franchise is as good as in the original!

    Good Afternoon

    Well, I must say to the management how easy I can get around in your store, in my wheelchair.

    I need some skirts that will not go on the wheels of my chair have you got any please. I do not like them too small lengh wise.

    Have you got any sparkly tops, or tee shirts that are sparkly please?

    Tillytop and Trisher

    Lovely to see you ladies in my new store. Glad you like it :) We have a personal shopper on hand, my daughter Ellen, who will guide you in choosing long length trousers and comfy shoes. Don't worry Trisher, her auntie is a wheelchair user and she knows exactly what you need and will find some blingy tops for you. I'm warning you now though, she is VERY bossy! And a bit too scary for an 11 year old.

    My 6 year old is currently running the cafe. She can't make the drinks with boiling water because she might burn herself and her marmite on toast is a bit lacking in marmite (and toasted bread) but she looks very cute standing on the stool behind the counter in a chef's hat :)

    I don't know where my 8 year old is... probably trying on shoes!

    If you need an opinion on what the clothes look like, then we have our Resident Telling You That You Look Fabulous Man. He's the one with his own chair in the corner of the dressing room.
