Dear Fellow Budget Hunters
This is just going to be a quick post on the breaking news from the Guardian on their list of places to go Christmas shopping. As a crazy Herefordian, I am always proud when the area I live in is mentioned anywhere in the press. I spent the majority of my time in Fresher’s week trying to explain where I lived and that it was different from Hertfordshire.
My family moved to Ledbury just over a year ago from North Herefordshire and I am just about finding my feet. I did a whole blog post this summer, where I went on an adventure to explore the town and it’s history.
I was very shocked when I saw that Ledbury was on this list, especially as my experience of some of the shops is they are rather pricy and not really the sort of things I would buy. However, I can see why it is in the list especially as there is a lot of boutiques and little independent shops that are definitely popular with the local celebrities.
Here is their comprehensive list of it’s top 10 best places for Christmas shopping.
- Lille, France
- Ghent, Belgium
- Ledbury, Herefordshire
As you can see Ledbury along with Glasgow, are the only places in the UK which have made it to the top 10, so I am sure we will wear this achievement with pride. I generally do my christmas shopping in Cardiff, as the chain stores are a lot bigger than Hereford or Malvern. I am also guilty of doing a lot of shopping online or getting creative with Pintrest ideas! I am very interested to hear where you like to shop and hope you enjoy my excitement over such a random article.
Lots of love
The Great Ambini
