Non-chocolate advent calendars - where????

Postby KatherineHepburn » Fri Nov 30, 2018 9:52 am

Ummm...ok...it’s the 1st tomorrow and I’m running a bit late on this.

However, since Between the Lines has gone I can’t find anywhere to buy really nice advent calendars. That aren’t just the chocolate ones.

Anyone know of anywhere?

Thanks much x

Ahhh I might have found a place in Balham.

We love the old-school, glittery, gorgeous calendars 😃

I eventually found a nativity one in a gift shop in Haslemere.... not helpful. But it's rare to find them!

John Lewis have quite a few and some lovely Woodmansterne ones.

I bought one this afternoon from the very brilliant Postmark on Balham High Road opposite Waitrose. Love that shop. Such good stock and so of course they've thought of lovely traditional advent calendars. And then I popped into the supermarket and grabbed a couple of chocolate ones to keep the peace (marked down in price as tomorrow's the 1st!)...😉

I went to Postmark in Balham!
They still have a good selection of huge, really gorgeous ones.
Happy kids and happy me 😍

We get ours every year from the church shop - Brompton Oratory do lovely ones, but all church shops sell the trad ones
