In the midst of the flood renovation I had to go to London for work...bad timing for sure. We took my Target buyer and senior buyer to Avent's headquarters based in Southgate, a suburb of London. We stayed in a cute little boutique hotel in the heart of the city. In fact, a short 5 minute walk through the park took us to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Parliament and Westminster Abby. We had some time to tour the city, which was really fun. We took a double decker bus around the city and had a cute little English gentleman give us all sorts of history on the city, we even saw the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Of course we also found time for some "trend shopping" (that's what we call it in the biz)...shopping is incredible there but the exchange rate for the dollar made things very expense so we didn't buy much! I did manage to get to Harrod's, what a dream, if I had an endless supply of cash I could have spent days there!
