The Magpie (http://www.jocretro.co.uk/#/magpie-in-skipton/4579524617) in Skipton is the supplier, this never happens in my life, usually stuff I want to buy can only bought from somewhere miles away or online. BTW The Magpie sells loads of lovely antiques, and it's own jams and chutneys and is also a micro brewerey.
