Say no to the evil shopping malls this year, with their demented musak and too many people……enjoy a whole new type of Christmas shopping experience at LAURAS FRONT ROOM!.

Yes, my crafty next door neighbor is being very courageous and ingenious by turning her front room into a shop for 2 days this weekend (10th +11th Dec). With 15 different designers involved, it will be stocked to the ceiling with great gift ideas, and FREE MULLED CIDER!, and very cosy indeed. The location is just around the corner from the junction of Stoke Newington Church St, and High St at the picturesque Gibson Gardens, come along and spread the word!


The fantastic Handmade Xmas ‘pop-up shop’ at Exmouth Market will be closing its doors this Saturday evening. (It was supposed to run until xmas but, as is the territory with ‘pop-up’ , the shop owners found a proper tenant). It is run by the Designers Makers collective, with many emerging and established designers work on sale presenting unique, locally sourced (your know what i mean) xmas gifts.

So, if you work or live round there, or just fancy a stroll down please do so and spread the word!

And if you are not living in the London area, you can always order from the DesignersMakers online shop, here:
