    mind

    Hello.

    There are a couple looking at art artifact made from the lights at an exhibition.

    He says to her, 'I know an electrician that could copy one of those for you. Might take him a couple of minutes, mind.'

    What does he mean by mind? Is it like 'Don't you mind?'

    Thanks, Alex.

    It means "be aware/understand".
