A womans Christmas.
In the lobby of the supermarket a trestle table has been set out. On it a plastic bottle of supermarket brand Coke, an unopened carton of orange juice, a dozen slices of plain cake , a pile of paper napkins and a stack of plastic cups. A sign saying " Father Christmas offers you a taste . Help yourself ". There seem to be few takers.
By the frozen chicken counter another table. This one has a sign saying ' A womans Christmas '. Underneath it the must have item of 2012 ? A glass mosaic 'Elvis' mirror. €19.90. Only goes to show. You can find all your shopping needs in a French supermarket if you look hard enough.
