Salts at Christmas

Salts Mill is a magical place to explore at Christmas. (OK, it's a magical place to explore at any time of year...) The huge, high rooms can accommodate massive traditional Christmas trees and there are usually three or four across the different floors. It's all done very tastefully, with none of the glitzy excess that you tend to find in city shopping malls. If your budget can stand it, there are some lovely gifts to be had too - lots of gorgeous books, of course, but also stylish things for the home, unusual jewellery, outdoor wear and beautiful gifts with an artistic flavour like calendars, notecards and art supplies. I hope you've done your shopping by now... It's getting a bit late.


  1. Oh, how beautiful! I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to shop there with an unlimited budget!

    All the blessings of the season to you and yours, Jennyfreckles!

  2. The variety of books is what really impressed me when I was there. Too heavy to bring home on the plane though!

  3. The urn is impressive, but I can't identify if it is Asian, Italian, Spanish, or . . . . . ?
