I've lived in Casa del Druid for 16 years, you'd think I'd have noticed by now that it's really a furniture shop.
I also had no idea the elderly Italian lady across the street was running a Vietnamese restaurant in her home.
Somehow both of those facts eluded me until I installed Apple Maps on my phone. [crazy]

TFD, You had better check with the town council about your business permit.

I tried to, but I couldn't find the Town Hall.

Word has it that Google recently released their own Maps app for iOS 6.
Please fetch a copy of this so you can /not/ get lost. [Big Grin]

TFD, Just for poops and giggles I googled Melbourne, I did a restaurant (Vietnamese) list then I did a furniture store list. I did find your combination of businesses. There were reviews of both places.

So your on line persona is quite different than your furniture sales. All this time I thought you were a code head.

Do you have any recommendations for a recliner?

I actually need some new furniture, but I think the shipping from Australia might be a bit much. You should really think about opening up stores in other areas so we could all be your customers TFD.

Yeah, but Google would have shown them in their correct location, Richmond.
I'm in a street with the same name in North Melbourne, 6 km away.
