|People spending at high end stores in West London|
I know it's going to sound like a bit of a cliché but yesterday at Westfield's in Sheperds Bush there was plenty of spending going on and it certainly felt like a recession free zone - So recession what recession?
I could positively see no sign of a post Brexit holding off on the spending and all around me in West London I see in shop and café windows signs 'for hiring'.
[And in fact we saw the towering Richard 'Pointless' Osman there.]
In fact the shopping centre has quite a few new 'names' and there seems to be more (like John Lewis) expected - these aren't the Poundlands and discount stores of so many high streets (or short term lets and charity outlets) - you've got the big designer names in abundance and well heeled shoppers - fortunately there are sales and bargains too otherwise I'd have come home empty handed.
Oddly a profusion of Skull influenced merchandise which would have (perhaps) brought a smile to Noah Scalin's face - below are a couple of items
|Just what we all need.|
Apple store looking very busy - with 'techies' and gadget fanciers also a Tesla Store had a nice looking motor on show.
|A Tesla Girl|
|And yest more skulls|
As you'd expect (if you read yesterday's entry) plenty of Red on show at Westfields - like the image below (which I do) .. [see a rough cut of the ongoing project here]
|Another picture I like - feels like the guy in grey is less 'real' than the waitress and he's doing a double -take|
