Christmas comes but once a year.
This may be so, but for Smith &+ Village, it lasts about eleven months.
Since January, we've been beavering away on the concept and design for Christmas 2015. We obviously can't give much away. but we promise it's going to be bigger and better than last year.
And for the sake of Christmas, we now find ourselves on a road trip through all the most photogenic bits of the North West of England, speaking to suppliers who make Christmas at Booths possible.
Like Booths, they're all small family companies and they're all mad about proper food and drink from their region. Today it's been artisan canapé and pie makers in the Yorkshire Dales and a microbrewery in the Lakes. Tomorrow it's a third-generation sprout farmer on Hesketh Bank. We can't wait for December.
