...just a reminder that we will be open tonight, Wednesday 22nd december, for the last of the four Columbia Road Christmas Wednesday openings. We look forward to seeing you.

This was the scene along Columbia Road last weekend. It really was lovely. I'm only sorry I wasn't quick enough to get a photograph of the man that went down the street on ski's. Yes, really.


Beautiful new hand screen printed mugs, every one different as everyone is different...£20 each. An all time favourite, walnut wood keys with special christmas ribbon, £20 each. And we have a stack of diaries with three different cover designs, made especially for the Japanese market. No need to pay ebay prices, as they are only £12 and £8 each in the shop now.

It was the first of our late night openings last night, and despite the freezing temperatures, the street was lively and the shop comfortably busy. And our glowing paper cut in the window drew quite a crowd. As well as our usual saturday and sunday trading hours, we will be open on Wednesdays between 5pm and 9pm for the next three weeks so if you missed it last night, there is still plenty of opportunity. Columbia Road at night time is really rather lovely.

Wednesday, 1 December 2010

We are looking forward to our first late night opening tonight, wrap up warm and come and visit us tonight between 5pm and 9pm. And over the next few weeks anyone coming into the shop will have their purchases ensconced in one of our lovely new christmas carrier bags.
