Liberty - Christmas Shop

Last post of 2010! First off, I wish you all a kind of late Merry Christmas, I hope you had a great time with your family, friends, or whoever you spent it with and I also wish you a happy new year.

And now on to this farewell 2010 post, which of course, deals with Christmas, this nice time of year, which ideally includes firs, snow, Christmas lights, presents and all that, but realistically involves A LOT of crowds.

Due to my love of the (ideal) Christmas time, when I walked into this small section of Liberty, I became pretty excited. I mean, did you see those lights?

Right?? Check out the wood, the tree, the lights... Liberty is a luxurious department store located on Regent Street, right in the center of the city. Luxurious because, for instance, in the clothing section they sell brands such as Burberry, Chloe, Jil Sander, Vivienne Westwood... Basically what I wear everyday to do my groceries. They also sell furniture, textiles, fancy stationery (kind of expensive, by the way) and more. The building itself is really beautiful though, on the inside and the outside, so you should totally check it out.

But that's not what I wanted to talk about today. Today I'm here to talk about the Christmas shop, located on the 4th floor. As you've seen in the previous pictures, they sell decorations for the tree (arranged by color!) and the house in general.

But in the adjacent room (probably my favorite), they have nice candy (the type you'd be sad to eat) and small presents, mostly games, which I love mainly because of their packaging. Most of them look vintage and come with beautiful illustrations. This whole area oozes an awesome Christmas feeling, like you're in a movie, so if you get a chance, do stop by! Hopefully these pictures will speak for themselves.

And to fully submerge yourself (I think I just made that expression up) in the spirit of Christmas, you should read Letters from Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien!
