Hot cakes

christmas fair

Ali’s furnishings sold like hot cakes at the Marché de Noel in Roujan today. Favourites were beautiful large silk cushions, tall doorstops and, in this draughty part of France where many people live in glorious but chilly converted wine-makers’ houses, the draught-excluders were making swift purchases. With further commissions for contemplation cushions, bespoke draught-excluders and silk pillows, Ali will be busy in the run-up to Christmas.
