Norwich City nesting dolls in Prague

Hi, thank you so much for putting me on the lookout for football nesting dolls in Prague. I am actually a Norwich City fan and can confirm with hey are still sold there, as I bought one just a few weeks ago.

Love how your podcast makes me feel like I’m just sitting down for a chat with y’all. Glad to have found this!
