For sale in the Stone Store: new textiles made in the same way as the trade goods that were stocked by the Church Missionary Society. Here are wool flannel blankets and bolts of printed cotton. The women who work as volunteer guides in the store are dressed in long dresses in nineteenth centry style, and are able to talk in an informed way about the practicality of such garments. Fortunately they did not affect silly accents, nor pretend ignorance of cars or cell-phones.
