Little wishes come true at The Country Living Magazine Christmas Fair
By Mark Kebble on October 31st 2010
It’s that time of year again: anyone under the age of ten is grabbing their paper and crayons and starting to frantically write a list of toys and wishes, long enough to baffle even Santa.
From teddies to toys, jigsaws to jumpers, you’d be hard pushed to find a store that caters for all the exciting and hopeful needs of your little one’s Christmas wishes. But The Country Living Magazine Christmas Fair at the Business Design Centre, Islington, from November 10-14, has it all. Not only is it a festive haven, crammed to the roof with treats for both small and big stockings, but it also makes for a great “Mummy’s Day Out”.
Christmas really begins with the tree, and those tiny hands can’t wait to cover it in the most sparkly of decorations. Bombki, one of Country Living Magazine Christmas Fair’s exhibitors, has unique and traditional tree decorations, so beautifully designed that you will want to display them in your home all year round. Little girls will delight in hanging up their ballet shoe decoration, whilst little boys will revel in watching the guards swinging from the branches. Bombki has something for both the traditional and the contemporary tree, ensuring you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for.
In the eyes of a child, no tree is complete without a pile of presents underneath it and the Country Living Magazine Christmas Fair aims to fulfil even the most extravagant and extensive wish-list. There truly is something for everyone, meeting all the festive needs of your children. Osborn and William wrap things up for Mum with their old-fashioned toy hampers, available in two designs for boys and girls. These delightful cases will entice and occupy hands and minds for hours on end, with their traditional toys and games.
For snugly Christmas wrapping up, children’s clothing label Alpaca Pie has gorgeous Alpaca wool knit jumpers and scarves for kids. Their collection features neutral earthy tones, entwined with bursts of colour, creating fun, classic knitwear for children. And it’s not just clothing they specialise in: Alpaca Pie also offer a divine range of soft toys and finger puppets which will keep younger ones entertained, and are so beautifully made, they’ll want to keep them forever.
So with Christmas just around the corner, what better way to begin festivities than with a visit to the enchanting Country Living Magazine Christmas Fair.
