Be down to Harvey Norman tomorrow! You are a golden god, may you live to be a thousand years old.

Recently went to a number of shops and could not find one for love or money.
I actually saw some in the front window of Guineys on Talbot street around Christmas time.

Style, streetware /athleisurewear has taken over it seems and real sports gear shops are gone.
Yep, try getting a pair of size 13 runners in any of them, not a hope in hell.

spent a considerable amount of time looking fir a spool of navy thread to sew on work shirt buttons last summer - apparently buttonless shirts are now disposable items - thread as rare as winning lotto numbers - lots of rumours and I heard of a man who knew someone who saw it in x place . but no substance
There was a haberdashery out in donabate would sort you out

Coal scuttles, I can only imagine they live in houses where the heating is a switch on the wall

As to Milton, I buy the Lidl or Aldi own brand one, the Aldi one is in a blue bottle (Mamia is the name), regular stock items!

For a ladder ? Was it an interview for the Fire Brigade?
