We're quite excited at So Organic that our Greenwich store will be participating in the live advent windows calendar happening from the 1st to the 24th of December. Our job is to brainstorm, create and prepare a surprise festive shop window decorated with anything we wish, under the theme Dark and Light. Each window is prepared by volunteers and we are one of them. The idea is one window will be unveiled each evening in the lead up to Christmas. It will take approximately two hours to wonder to all 24 of the advent windows.
We will be unveiling our window at 6.30pm on the 3rd of December at our store in Greenwich, 7 Turnpin Lane. It will be an evening of discount shopping and free gift-wrapping. We'll even have delicious homemade mince pies and mulled wine for all!
We can't tell you what we'll be doing but we can give you a clue to what we have been dreaming up. Our window is titled Tread Lightly upon the Earth and here's a clue... childhood play and eco dreams collide.
You can download a map and find details of all members taking part in the live advent calendar on the special website
set up for this fabulous community-spirited Christmas activity.
Windows will be on display until the 5th of January 2009.
