When I first moved to London, one of the first places on my "must see" list was Harrods. I only knew of a few people who had ever been and was envious of their Harrods shopping bags that they carted back with them.
I lived in London for 5 years and made lots of visits, sometimes for hours at a time, stopping only briefly for tea and cakes in one of the many cafes before moving onto the next floor. I often took goodies home from the Food Hall along with a shopping bag or two that I still use and a couple of tea towels. On one of my last visits before we moved back to NZ (5 years ago now, time flies) I bought the two cream coloured Harrods tins as mementos.
Since being back I have come across the 3 green tins, ranging from 50cents to $1.50. I always keep an eye out for them and am hoping to add to my (nana) collection. I have them displayed (gathering dust) on the top shelf in our kitchen. I love looking at them as they always bring back great memories of my time in London and that treasure trove in Kensington........Harrods.
Have you been to Harrods? What did you buy? Were you blown away by the food hall and the people watching?
Found anything great lately? Pop over and share it with Max.
