the happy little sixpence

An old lady, who must be frugal with her limited funds, receives the sixpence as change after purchasing some potatoes and onions at the market. She then approaches a flower stall, and although the flower man is initially hesitant to sell for such a small amount, he changes his mind upon seeing the cheerful sixpence. The old lady expresses that she only has the sixpence to spare for the flowers. I’m only charging you sixpence said the flower man happily . Now i must go to cheer up my husband said the old lady
