For those who don’t already know, the Spirit of Christmas is an annual exclusive Christmas shopping event which is specially curated and showcases over 800 independent boutique retailers and design makers. From womenswear, homeware, jewellery, kids, menswear and accessories, it’s a great chance to see all the independent brands and their amazing products (you’ve still got time, it finishes on Sunday).
After our recent visit we were amazed to see the huge amount of brands showcasing their products, so here’s a round up of (a few) of our favourite:
