After many months of waiting Cabots Circus in Bristol is now open. I have waited patiently for the crowds to die down so that I can have a chance to really shop till I drop and find out what it's like (purely for research of course). On Friday I got the chance to spend the whole day there and had to stop myself running down the street to get there. This may sound a bit OTT to those who live in London or are used to having access to a wide variety of shops and brands at a large shopping centre but in the West Country, this is the fist time I have had a chance to shop at many of the shops. The biggest excitement of the whole day was visiting Hary Nichols, which was only small but a great opportunity to see some designer clothes up close and soak up the whole luxurious atmosphere. I couldn't really afford anything there but have planned another trip back when I make my first million.
I bought most of my shopping from the huge House of Fraser there which had just about every brand I could think of from Diesel to Day Birger et Mikkelson. There was a massive accessories department which I didn't really get the time to look at. There was also a really big Zara which was great as I have never really had the chance to shop in a Zara before. Unfortunately, I don't think the clothes are made for short people and non of the stuff I tried on fitted me.
All in all, it was a good shopping experience but will be even better in a few months when everything is completly finished and pedestrianised areas are clear for me to rush from shop to shop.
