A nice way to spend an afternoon

Yesterday I spent the afternoon wandering around Botany Bay, off the M61 near Chorley, where I haven’t been for at least 15 years! With four floors of stalls and shops housed within a renovated mill, it’s quite a unique shopping experience.

From the Dickensian style shops selling old fashioned sweets and  those unusual food items that I always love to put together in gift hampers for Christmas presents (beers, wines, chocolates, chutneys etc), to the stalls selling pretty gifts, jewellery, candles and homewares, it’s the perfect Christmas shopping destination! On top of that there’s antiques and collectables, and floors of stylish furniture too.

An enjoyable afternoon, which I finished off with tea and cake in the Casablanca-themed café!
