Bjork enjoys shopping trip on Isle of Wight

Isle of Wight shoppers may have been in for a surprise on Monday (September 12th) after Icelandic pop star Bjork visited a bookshop on the island.

The singer-songwriter had headlined the Bestival music event on the Isle of Wight the previous evening and was spotted in Waterstones in Newport at around lunchtime.

Shop manager Paul Armfield missed the star's appearance as he was on his break at the time, reports VentnorBlog.

"There were so many booky things I'd have liked to have talked to her about," he told the local news source, as well as adding she put on a pair of "enormous" sunglasses as she left the store.

Bjork spent £170 on her trip to the Isle of Wight bookshop, buying a number of David Attenborough CDs, as well as a QI board game.

Shop worker Tom Farren added that she "seemed cool" and stated that serving the star is something he is never going to forget, the Isle of Wight County Press reported.
