This is my Christmas wishlist - and all from one shop. I've been familiar with the branch of Nauticalia in Greenwich for years. It proclaims itself "the first shop in the world", being the closest shop to the Meridian line. It sells among other things: decorative ship's wheels, ship's cats that dogs always bark at in the window, green (starboard) and red (port) lanterns, compasses and a variety of other seafaring related ephemera. I'd bought gifts there for the sailing obsessed (hi dad!) and had noticed a small selection of clothing, but I didn't
realise until my friend got a beautiful aran cardigan from there that they had a website - with loads of stuff I want! I'm keeping it to just a small edit of clothes here but I could browse for hours. I think I prefer this type of shop, where the buying isn't necessarily aimed or marketed at someone like me, but you can find fantastic stuff if you sift through all the randomness without the selection having all been done for you. Yes, I definitely prefer that.
