So, this is our final post of the year, folks. Its been a momentous 2011 for our business in general, but particularly for the blog. This started out as a place for us to post about all the stuff we couldn’t quite fit into our reports and has become much more than that, mainly due to all of you lovely people who bother to spend some precious time out of your hectic days to check out what we’re posting. Yes, its all for you. You know who you are!
Here’s a shot of very possibly our favourite London Christmas lights. Just behind Liberty on Carnaby Street is this huge, illuminated bunch of mistletoe. If you’d like us to deliver our thanks to you in person, we’ll be under there at 7pm ce soir, puckered up and waiting for you…
We hope that we can continue to provide you with information and inspiration in 2012.
So, its all about Christmas right across the London retail scene. Its a festive frenzy of spangly lights and that Wham CD gets dusted off so that we can all hum along to ‘Last Christmas’ as we contemplate the joys of buying for others versus more self gifting!
I thought I’d share the Christmas joy with you via some shots of my favourite Christmas retail looks. On the whole, the high street and department stores seem to have gone for high kitsch this time around, but I have managed to unearth some slightly more tasteful options…
Enjoy and sending you Santa shaped Christmas best wishes!
