When it comes to shopping, I’m a bit of an old-fashioned girl. I like nice surroundings. I can be totally seduced by a beautiful arcade, especially when it’s prettied up for Christmas.
In fact, I might as well admit it, I’m a hopeless shopper! I much prefer to admire the buildings. As I put this post together, I’m watching the TV series on Libertys of London. Many years ago, when I was finding my feet in the city, I did some temp work in the store. It’s really beautiful and I’ve had a soft spot for it ever since.
These days “the city”, for me, is Newcastle-on-Tyne. The highlight at Christmas time is Fenwick’s Department Store and its window display. Click on a photo to see it in more detail.
My kind of shopping! The window kind. Which ties in very well with Dawn’s Lingering Look at Windows challenge. I bet there are some more Christmas windows to see this week. Click on the link to find out.
