If you live down south and haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet (or even if you are super efficient and fancy spending money on yourself) then head over to the Boutique Market currently running events in Portsmouth and Southsea areas.
A hubbub of unique stalls selling handmade craft, artists work, vintage clothes, retro items and more. All made or collected by local people and small businesses. The perfect place to pick up that little something that is unique and special and avoid all the mass produced and crowds of the usual shopping centers.
