Following a train of thought from the "what pencils do you use" thread; I wonder why tile shops - Topps excepted here- hang behind other retailers in widening their field and sell such things as might be useful in doing tiling? along with other areas they might make sales with - bathroom bits and pieces for instance. You see it happening everywhere else. I think it's an example of how little most think they have to do with the fixing trades. Always at arms length - well many of them - what's your experience ?
