While I was in London I took the opportunity to visit the Liberty of London store. I was so excited about this place that I had written it on our 'itinerary' and hubby thought it was some sort of tourist attraction (which it probably is).
From the moment you turn the corner into the street, this place blows you away. It is the most amazing looking store I've ever seen.
This beauty is nestled between large boring corporate style buildings so it really stands out.
We all know the fabric is amazing but what surprised me was how amazing the actual store is. There are five levels to the store, all with different themes, around a central mezzanine. The streets around it are so crazy busy and the store itself was pretty busy too but its so full of beautiful things in such a beautiful setting that it's hard to remember you are in modern day London.
It's also hard to remember that 22 pounds per metre is NOT the same as 22 australian dollars and that you don't need to buy everything in the store.
They had some pretty good specials on precut lengths of fabrics and it was super hard to decide what to buy. Apart from fabric they have ready to wear clothes made out of their beautiful fabrics as well as ready to wear brands.
In their bathroom/homewares section you could buy slippers, shower caps and curtains in their prints. My husband had to literally drag me from the store, as it was impossible to walk through it without finding something I NEEDED to buy.
