Last Minute Christmas from Independent Urmston

There are only a few days left to get your Christmas fripperies from Urmston’s independent businesses.    From Station Road to Church Road, from the market to Flixton Road you can find some lovely things and support your local economy.

I’ve previously posted about some gift opportunities, but here are a few things I’ve spotted in the past few days:

Free!

Frances in the bookshop has prepared some lovely snacks for hungry reindeer.  Get down there and get yours now.

Cheap as chips

After you pick up your free reindeer food you can trot over the road to Candy Stripes, the newly-opened sweet shop on Flixton Road.  Sandra has many sweet treats and Christmas indulgences for you.

Say it with flowers

I got some last minute flowers from the market; there is also Floribunda on Flixton Road.  While I was there I got two jars of jam – mulled wine and pink champagne.

Costly but covetable

At £300 this bike is no stocking filler but it’s a limited edition design classic commemorating 70 years of the Beano.  Get it from Eddie McGrath Cycles on Station Road.

Finally, all that remains is for me to wish all the readers of this blog a very festive winter break and a Happy New Year when it comes.  Thank you for reading this blog in 2013 and please carry on in 2014.
