It's back! The annual London Christmas Shopping Guide from The Daily Constitutional!
This year I'll be including museum gift shops and markets for gift ideas.
As well as gifts I'll be pointing you toward local London shops for the best in Christmas food and drink. Where relevant, I'll list the London Walks tour that finishes near the shop in question.
As usual, you can drop me a line with your own tips by emailing the usual address, by leaving a comment below or via Twitter.
LASSCO - London Architectural Salvage & Supply Co.
Isobel, our woman in Vauxhall, points us to an Aladdin’s cave in SE1…
“LASSCO specializes in architectural Antiques and salvage, but is also idea for one off unusual gifts – anything from plugs to historic costumes.”
Isobel is an artist, journalist, linguist, prize-winning Blue Badge Guide and London Walks' token aristocrat. One of her ancestors introduced the waltz to this country.
