The Dennistoun doll had flown north to open a new Kensitas gift showroom in Cambridge Street. In the days when it seemed that half of Glasgow smoked like beagles in a lab, nicotine addicts could collect cigarette coupons to swap for gifts. Many a kettle, toaster or transistor radio was paid for using the wee, blue gift certificates. Shame they didn't offer iron-lungs!
Smokers would leaf through the gift catalogue, running nicotine-stained fingers down the listings to see how many fags they had to puff their way through to pick up a 'free' Goblin 'Teasmade'.
Today, of course, clean-living Lulu wouldn't have anything to do with the evil weed, and the Kensitas store vanished long ago to be replaced by a Farmfoods.
