Libertys is by far my favourite department store in London and the experience of shopping there is most enjoyable at Christmas time. The buyers are quirky and original, which is a breath of fresh air in today’s homogenised fashion society. I can rely on Libertys to introduce me to the latest and greatest from all around the world and all in a beautiful environment that has been rearranged for better energy flow to good effect. I hate shops that are too big or offer too much choice. I can’t stand it, I feel panicky and overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. So I don’t. Libertys is a small department store with small collections but I feel comfortable there, as if a personal stylist had selected each item for me to paw through. These are photos of me doing what I love to do each year. Shopping at Libertys. I’ve spent many happy hours shopping away but it’s also a place I like to meet friends and family for a cup of tea and a chat. Libertys is my spiritual shopping home as it has many wonderful memories, and I like nothing more than introducing people to the store. Here is a picture of my beautiful girl, waiting for me outside.

I popped down to London mid November and met a fellow blogger friend outside Libertys flower stall. It really is the most perfect place to meet and somewhere where we both wanted to go. I did a post on it mid November’ish this year and I remember I used to take little shopping sojourns by myself to Libertys many years ago before I had children. I never lived in London but I paid a visit maybe once or twice a year to visit friends.
