A Very Portobello Christmas

I haven't had time to go to Portobello Market very much recently but this weekend i made the time and took the Pashley (and the boy) for a long overdue visit. My first stop was the wonderful Pedlars on Talbot Rd where i ooh'd and ahh'd and got completely over-excited just from looking at the window. It felt all christmasy, especially as the steel band were playing christmas carols in the background.

When I stepped inside there were so, so, so many things that i fell for.  From bobbin racks, helmets, limited edition vintage style prints, a new bell for my bicycle and who needs an ipod when you can have a vintage gramophone! A mere snip at £400 so maybe not today but the bell, I can most definitely stretch to.

FYI - I've added this bag to my never ending christmas wish-list 

Then we grabbed a drink form a very festive Tom's on Westbourne Grove and I walked past Whistles, painfully slowly... If only I could have just tried on the blue polka dot dress! I tried to make him understand that I'm simply planning my January sale wish list but he just doesn't understand...

The Boy, popped into Rough Trade to indulge his passion (hic all-consuming obsession) whilst I admired a beautiful Blue Pashley Britannia with a blue bow parked humbly outside.

As is mandatory whenever i'm within a 1 mile radius, I popped into Graham and Green on Elgin Crescent to pick up a lovely ceramic nativity tealight holder to go with my ceramic acorn and pine cone from The Conran Store and when i got back to my bike, look what i saw! Twins!!!

Finally, it was home to decorate the tree with my new purchases...
