On Sunday we went and took a look at the inside of the future home of The Mythical Beast Sweet Shoppe. After many visits where we had been restricted to pressing our faces to the window it was really nice to finally get inside and see what we had to work with. The space has recently been repainted by the volunteers who run 'The Friends of the Old Pier' upstairs, and the white wooden walls, with black beams were all sparkly in the sunshine.
