Most shops in the UK are happy to spread a bit of tinsel around in a bid to attract the Christmas shopper, if you want the wow factor you might expect to have to go to Oxford Street in London. Many of Glastonbury shop keepers do put a huge amount of effort in. I think it was the Lilith shop that started it all, I’m guessing about 12 years ago, with a life size reindeer. I was so impressed I grabbed random passers by and made them look.
For those of you who won’t get to visit the town over the festive season, and those who’ve been here so long that you don’t actually notice anything anymore, I took a few photos, added some captions and here you go.
If you can I highly recommend coming to Glastonbury yourself to do some Christmas Shopping, if everyone you have to buy things for is resolutely normal then you can just buy things for yourself instead. If you can’t make it into town there is of course my Glastonbury Christmas Gift Guide, Read an earlier post about Glastonbury’s shops here, and you might like this post about the Frost Fayre too.
