It’s the week before Christmas and all through the land stressed out shoppers are scurrying around. At Christmas time there is little or no escape on high streets or other shopping areas from the madding crowds. It’s just the lucky few insanely organized folk who sorted all things to do with Christmas weeks ago who can now sit happily at home. Freighted as the festive season is with lorry loads of expectations those of us who have left things to the last-minute have no choice but to join frenzied fray. However one way to escape the worst of the madcap cacophonous crowds is to shop out-of-town.
I find that the shops I like the most are the hardest things to write about on the blog, as there is always the fear that my words and photographs will not do them full justice. AMOC Jewellery is a special favourite of mine. It is not your average jewellers selling a mass of homogenous manufactured items. Instead it is a veritable treasure trove of handcrafted jewels designed by Mette, AMOC’s talented owner. The prices are amazingly reasonable.
