For many reasons too boring to chronicle, I have not yet started on the Holiday shopping. Maybe I’m spending too much time wishing I was back in Mayfair. Now that would be a place to go shopping!
I’m sure I could find 99% of my gifts at Fortnum and Mason! In fact, I was just looking online to see if I could purchase Fortnum and Mason tea somewhere (William and Sonoma). But wouldn’t I love to be browsing through the Mayfair store again.
I also wish I could purchase something from Floris. Not only are the scents wonderful, I would just love to walk into the store again!
Books are always a good gift, right? Especially from Hatchard’s
It’s difficult to pick a hat as a gift for someone, but if I stopped into Lock and Co., I’d get to gaze at Wellington’s hat and Nelson’s.
After exhausting the options in Mayfair, I could stop at a boutique in Chelsea.
No matter what store–heck, I’d even settle for a stop in Boots–I’d rather be shopping in England.
How about you? Any dream locations for Holiday shopping?
Oh yes Diane!!! I would so love to shop in England again! I’ve started my shopping last week and only have a few more to go. Books are what I got the younger siblings, they do need to read more, but as for the parents….. Still undecided. But I would love to go to NYC, Paris, and England for my Holiday shopping.
I’ll go shopping in Mayfair with you, O Divine One! I would probably want to move in and live at Hatchard’s! I do most of my shopping online these days. A shopping trip to London sounds fantastic! Sigh.
Sigh. Miss you terribly, especially after reliving this!
How delightful. What fun such a shopping spree would be! Count me in. 🙂 I’m endeavoring to learn how to find things all year long. We’ve a Ren Faire in Feb and Mar, so many artisans. I do like purchasing gift certificates to my favorite eatery for my friends who live close by.
Oh, I’d be so into a Riskies shopping expedition in Mayfair! I also noticed Floris will deliver free to the US if you spend over $150. Not that it’s in my budget but maybe someday…
