How much?

There is no more gorgeous a shop in London, possibly the world, than Liberty. While the high streets around it and beyond become more and more ubiquitous, this mock-tudor department store remains utterly unique – designed by Edwin Thomas Hall and son Edwin Stanley Hall to resemble a stately home.

It’s certainly one we’d love to live in, with an eccentric best-of-British jumble of haberdashery and its world-renowned fabrics, high-end fashion plus lotions and potions aplenty. Despite its vintage appearance, there is much innovation to be found, and they recently opened an excellent Josh Wood hair salon, an expensive but brilliant childrenswear department and a capacious bath shop offering many fragrant delights.

Really, these are the best?  Just in London 2 weeks ago.  Took pictures in Harrods but did mad shopping in Primark and H&M!  Not even on the list.  

Would recommend both Primark and H&M over these places with more walls than merchandise.
