Pot luck

Vocable (All English) - - Échos -

A lucky Dutch­man has just won a sur­pris­ing prize in a raf­fle... a book­shop! The se­cond-hand shop, called Book­ends, was set up by his cur­rent owner, Paul Mor­ris, in Cardi­gan, Wales, in 2014. It is prof­itable and would have made an es­ti­mated £30,000 in a sale but Paul Mor­ris, who is tak­ing an early re­tire­ment, de­cided to give an in­cred­i­ble op­por­tu­nity to a booklover. “The prin­ci­ple was to make sure the shop con­tin­ues in good hands,” he said. Over three months, any cus­tomer who spent more than £20 in his shop could en­ter the prize draw. The winning ticket was pulled out of a hat in Septem­ber. The win­ner will re­lo­cate to Cardi­gan to run the book­shop with a friend of his.
