Is this the best Christmas store front in Britain? Good Saturday morning from London and this lovely shot by @tmnikonian of Cartier...Now we all know the true spirit of Christmas is not collecting expensive items or spending vast amounts of money on presents. But it's fun to see such shop fronts, don't you agree?
As my grandfather used to say - Money can't buy you happiness - But you can be miserable in comfort 😂
Set in the heart of historic Mayfair, in London’s popular West End, Bond Street has become a haven for those seeking the finer things in life. Mayfair was named after the annual fortnight-long May Fair which took place on the site that is now Shepherd Market from 1686 until it was banned from this location in 1764. Mayfair was anciently part of the parish of St Martin in the Fields, and became part of St George Hanover Square in 1724.
It's also a great place to explore when you visit the capital. I also love a good literary reference - Bond Street has been mentioned in several works of literature, including Jane Austen's novel Sense and Sensibility and Virginia Woolf's 1925 novel, Mrs Dalloway. I absolutely love going to the capital during the Christmas period with all the different markets across town. Including Christmas by the Thames where you can indulge in mulled wine, prosecco, warming soups and gooey mac‘n’cheese. Perfect.
