And there are more hand made presents to be found inside the Town Hall all weekend in the Etsy Christmas Market.
Meanwhile, on Muswell Hill, there’s going to be a local first – the Friends of St James Square were successful in their bid for funding for a Christmas tree ( congratulations to them and a big thank you too as I am sure we will all enjoy it). ‘The plan is that we will have a gorgeous tree each year, lit up throughout the holiday season. On Saturday 3rd December 1pm-5pm the tree will be lit up for the first time at a celebration in St James Square – which we are calling A Very Merry Muswell. The event will take place on the same day as Small Business Saturday – a UK wide initiative to encourage people to ‘shop local’.’ We hope it is a huge success.
If you wake on Sunday morning feeling like you really must shop a bit more (locally of course) you could dip into the Antique Collector’s Fair at Ally Pally – buying used stuff helps the planet so antiques should be on the responsible shopper’s list. Or maybe, like me, you just like them.
