Spillers Music Shop in Cardiff (capital city of Wales, UK) has been trading since 1894 and has been under threat of closure by greedy landlords hiking the rent. There's a petition to save it from closure - if you're keen on supporting independant shops (and a quirky piece of British history), please sign the online petition here http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/spillersrecords/

You might be asked for a donation, but just close the box. Your signature will still be recorded. And there are a few clips on youtube about spillers too, for your delight.

Signed! I love independent shops (mom and pop shops as we call 'em here)...

Thanks! It's a great little shop and my other half spends lots of our money in there. I'd have trouble justifying another ukulele (another ukulele, dear?) if I couldn't keep saying 'Another CD dear? That's nice.'
