Artist's description:

I went into a kind of 'we sell everything shop' in the centre of Bacup.
After looking around the rows of shelves stacked to the ceiling with all sorts of interesting things, I made my way to the counter. A little man in a flat cap eating a mannings cheese and onion pie appeared and asked me how could he help me?
I said; 'Id like a tin of peas, a blue raincoat, a quarter pound of fresh beef and a bead rug'
He mumbled something untinteligable, then replied; ' You can have a tin of peas, a blue raincoat, a quarter pound of fresh beef; but you cant have a bead rug'
I said, 'look mate, Id like a tin of peas, a blue raincoat, a quarter pound of fresh beef and a bead rug'
He looked me up and down and replied ' You can have a blue raincoat, a quarter pound of fresh beef and a bead rug; but you cant have a tin of peas'
I said ' what kind of shop is this? ... when you wont sell me what I ask for!.. can I speak to your manager please?'
He replied; ' I am the manager! .. my names Charley! ... Look, you seem an ok kind of a guy, so Ill sell you a bead rug and a quarter pound of fresh beef; and Ill throw a box of chalk in for good measures!'

Serpeants are amazing beings, but they can make hell of a mess on your carpet! I wear three of them on my right hand. These represent three serpeants I invoked into my life a few years ago. When they entered my world they told me to 'TRUST'; then proceeded to rip the carpet of my reality into tiny shreds. Now I can feel them in the undercurrent of my life, furiously stitching away; remaking that carpet; but with a new weave, a new pattern and brand new threads!
