Left-field Shopping Center

The divinely dilapidated interior of St Paul's Church, almost as beautiful as a crumbling Venetian palazzo (although Essex Road doesn't quite conjure-up The Grand Canal), is hosting the most magical Advent event today. Browse the pretty, candle-lit stalls of hand made gifts, vintage cashmere and retro home-ware. Snuggle in the cozy cafe and nibble mince pies to the music of a heavenly harp. Breathe in the divine aroma of beeswax, Christmas spices and lavender...
Warning: Not a lot there for teenage boys - although Ed secretly enjoyed a few glugs of mulled wine behind the altar.
