It’s crazy that two years have passed since we first told you about Babyccino Kids: The Shop Up, the fabulous two-day shopping fest in December. Where have the weeks, months and years gone? I’m still in shock that we’re practically sleigh-flying towards Christmas and 2017, but at least there are winter festivals, Christmas markets and other goodies to look forward to.
One of my absolute favourite things to do (in life as well as at Christmas) is to hunt down presents for my nearest and dearest. I love picking up unique, exotic or personalised gifts for adults and kids, treasures that you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
The Shop Up, Babyccino Kid’s holiday market, is the ideal destination for fellow treasure-hunters. Held at Chelsea Old Town Hall for the second year in a row, it’s a showcase of beautiful items of clothing, trinkets and accessories from some of the world’s best indie boutiques.
Browse collections from brands like Niddle Noddle, Mandarine Coco, Honey and Toast and Elfie. Find something special for that ‘impossible to buy for’ guy in your life, or to surprise and delight the babes with in their Christmas stockings.
All of the vendors on offer come with the Babyccino Kids team’s stamp of approval, so you can rest assured it’s all top-notch. These mamas have redefined stylish living for a truly cosmopolitan audience.
And to keep you in a festive mood, there will be fun activities for all the family including face painting and a chance to sit on Santa’s knee for a holiday snap. Enjoy yummy treats to eat, a Ruuby braid bar, foodie fun with Little Dish, Christmas tree crafting and loads more on the menu. Feast your senses.
The ShopUp is on Dec 4 (1pm to 6.30pm) & Dec 5 (9.30am to 5pm) at Chelsea Old Town Hall, King’s Road (opposite Sydney St), London, SW3 (Sloane Square tube). FREE entry! Visit http://www.theshopup.com
