Liberty Tana Lawn Knot watches £55 here
I could NOT believe my eyes when I saw these watches in Liberty when I went in for one of my customary poke-around, mental shopping list sessions the other week. (Honestly there’s pretty much NOTHING I don’t want in that store. It’s like a bazaar of everything you could ever want in the world, ever.*)
My lil’sis had one back in the mists of time – well, actually I know how long ago it was because there was a bloody great piece of pasteboard saying: ‘re-edition of a watch sold at Liberty TWENTY YEARS AGO’ – and that didn’t make me feel AT ALL OLD.
When I was a teeny tiny teenager, these watches were the dernier cri. Of course they were fearfully expensive to those of us who got £1.50 a week pocket money, and only the very favoured few – like my sister who attracts savings like a magnet, whereas I lose them like a leaky bucket – actually got to sport one.
I really think it may be time to invest in one. After all it has been TWENTY YEARS.
(Please excuse dodgy cameraphone photo – I was trying to be subtle in my picture taking. I find assistants the world over think you are planning a major heist and take it very badly if you jump around clearly taking photographs in -store.)
*This might be a good moment to say, yet again, that the name of my blog has absolutely nothing to do with Liberty the store. Nothing at all. Much as I adore it, it was Not named after it in any way.
