You can get some great Christmas gifts while supporting local businesses
We know Croydon is one of the best places to live in London, and now this is being immortalised.
If you’re a Croydonian and proud then you need to head down to the Cronx Boutique’s Christmas pop-up shop , which will be selling Croydon-centric products made by South London designers this December.
There are mugs from East Croydon Cool with slogans like ‘New York, Paris, Milan, Croydon’ and ‘Croydon is Always a Good Idea’, Croydon artist Glenn Foster’s prints – including framed works, Christmas cards and coasters – and ‘Cronx Life’ tees, tote bags and canvas pouches from IvyRose London.
It’s the perfect place to buy Christmas gift s for Croydon lovers, and with items priced from just £3 it will be the ideal spot for picking up stocking fillers and Secret Santa gifts.
There will also be a number of craft events, such as creating personalised gift tags, wrapping and cards.
With interior design direction from local style consultant Laura Sawyer, the Cronx Boutique will not be your typical Christmas pop-up.
Taking influence from Croydon’s brutalist architecture, the boutique will celebrate ‘Minimalist Industrial Chic’ as a welcome relief from over-decorated high street shops.
