One thought on “Christmas crafts

  1. Another market is Penrose Market at the Greenwich Peninsula (just by o2/North Greenwich tube). Run by Ravensbourne design students and with small creative businesses selling unique pieces at reasonable prices you can do all your christmas gift shopping there on the 15th of December from 2-6.30 while supporting tomorrows big names in design!
