One day you're downing ciders over ice, enjoying dusk picnics at 10pm and enduring the revolting stickiness of the summer underground - the next day there's ever so certainly a crispness in the air and dip in temperature. As much as you try and resist; dig in your sandals and shiver valiantly on in your cut-off dungarees, it inevitably signals the start of Autumn.
Got there just before 9am (opening time) on Thursday to see....well not much of a queue? Turns out they are so super organised this year they are handing out wristbands in timeslots - next one not until 11am, no need to wait in line!
Which freed me up for 2 hours to do even more shopping of course.
Once it was the timeslot we are ushered in and all the smiling staff welcome you in their Erdem tshirts clapping and cheering you on your spending spree :D
