I had to hunt high and low this year to get a poppy for remberance. Even in the big supermarkets they were not on sale nor in most pubs and shops. I have not even seen them being sold on the street in town! At one time evry shop anpub had them for sale and volunteers on the streets selling them.
I was wondering just what the reason for this is, in pubs I first thought that maybe it was because in case some light fingered tealeaf would pinch te money etc but then most have a carity box of some kind.
It seems that everywhere is willing to have a charity box of some kind but for this once a year thing they are not!

I never seen any for sale anywhere although a report on the TV said that so many had been sold that they actually ran out.

Hm, seems odd that in some areas they were on sale everywhere and in others you literaly had to hunt for one.

Must bhave been an area problem.. here (Chester le Street) couldn't find any until Sat a.m.

No problems in this area. I notice nowadays they are also selling the more elaborate ones again. I hope the people buying them are putting more money in the box, than they would for an ordinary common or garden one? I have always put a pound in for my common one and then found that a couple of days later it has vanished into thin air. So I buy another one. That also vanishes as do a few others and it's only when I notice that my grand children are all wearing them, that I know where they have gone. My wife also found a little badge type one somewhere this year so they must be selling them too.
