Christmas shopping on the Columbia Road

Mistletoe for sale
The Columbia Road is known for its Sunday street market where plants and flowers are sold, but during the Christmas holiday season, the merchants whose shops line the narrow street open their doors on Wednesday nights for shoppers. It's a merry and crowded crush, even on a rainy night.

Any last minute gift-shopping? Here are some holiday sights to tempt you!

 Glass Christmas ornaments

More ornaments - sparkly glass double decker buses, red phone booths, black cabs and Big Ben!

Old fashioned candy at the provocatively named candy store Suck and Chew.

Cosmetics and girly things!

Have a happy leather Christmas!

If you get tired, there's always the pub to retreat to!

I'm afraid the tourist in me would have had to buy all of those little London themed Christmas ornaments. Too cute.
