It’s December this week, which officially means that every single event taking place in London town will be linked to Christmas. There’s no getting away from it, so here’s a few fashion-based ones for you to pop down to, get cracking with the Christmas shopping and maybe pick up a few vintage bargains for yourself to kick start the festive mood (with the help of copious amounts of mulled wine): All I Want For Xmas Pop-Up Shop:
From now until 20th December, The Truman Brewery is hosting a mixture of exhibitions, designer sales and shopping stalls, from a range of independent designers, jewellery, home wares and fashion included. All your Christmas shopping needs under one roof, without having to go near Oxford Street. Bliss.
On Tuesday 1st December, Supermarket Sarah is bringing her online boutique to the real world, to the Biscuit Building in Shoreditch to be more precise. On her site, vintage hunter Sarah hangs all her finds on her wall and you simply click on what you want to buy it. In the 3D version, you are given a basket to fill with all the weird and wonderful wares of Supermarket Sarah, while obviously sipping on the complimentary wine.
On Thursday 3rd (in the Cheshire St store) and Friday 4th (in the Soho store) December, Beyond Retro are opening until 10pm for a shopping party, so you can peruse their vintage wares while sipping mulled wine and enjoying music from live bands.
So waste no more time, Christmas shopping can be a fun experience if you pop down to one of these events!
