The coffin in yesterday's blog was in a shop called The Purple Funeral Co, in Shropshire, now alas! no more. There was a workshop at the back and coffin-painting classes were offered. This was work in progress, but not mine in fact.
On the web I have found a similar shop in Bristol, and their coffin page is here if you are interested: tp://freespace.virgin.net/heaven.earth/coffin.html.
