Every so often I come across a person who listens, who really listens. And it scares the bejesus out of me because I say a lot of stupid things which I’m relying on people to forget. There are vague notions floating around in my head which I really should keep to myself but which I invariably blurt out because I always answer questions as thoroughly and honestly as I can. Unfortunately, this leads to follow-up questions such as “Weren’t you going to move to New York?” or “Weren’t you going to buy a coffee cart?” or “Weren’t you going to start a handmade jewellery business?” Well, vintage button collector Leora Elton really did start a handmade jewellery business. It’s called Preloved and her brooches and necklaces are stocked all over town.
