AN OCTOGENARIAN is selling off a whopping 1,200 tea towels this weekend that took over 36 years to collect.
Sheila Fowler’s kooky collection features designs from all over the world and different charities.
The 81 year old’s daughter Heather Foster is helping her to shift the prized possessions, many of which are holiday gifts from friends and family, to clear some space.
Sheila, who ran a sweet shop in Fleetville for 41 years with her late husband Bill, is downsizing to a ground floor flat and simply said: “Some things have got to go.”
Although the pensioner is sad to part with the trusty towels she said she does not need them any more.
