I’ve been working in Lincoln quite a bit recently. A couple of weeks ago, I walked past a branch of Cash Converters in the city and noticed 2 mandolins in the window. I thought this was a bit unusual, so I tweeted about it, which elicited a number of replies, several of which speculated that there may be a sad story about how they got there.
And then, a few days ago, I walked past the same shop again and the 2 mandolins had been joined by a third. The story gets even sadder.
So, help me tell that story. How did 3 mandolins come to be in the Lincoln branch of Cash Converters?
