      Just come back from looking round the atmospheric and frankly
      Dickensian-looking yards at the opposite end of the architectural spectrum
      from the Elephant and Castle, yet just 100 yards from it geographically.
      Made magical with lights and mulled wine.
      The three cobbled yards are home to a variety of artisans - from lute makers
      to bridal wear designers via photographers. And this is their annual open
      weekend.
      Blurb is below, but, before anyone shouts "You're off topic; desist", this
      is also the home of Eye Books which does travelogues (among other things)
      including several by long-distance cyclists. Titles such as Discovery Road
      www.eye-books.com/catalog2.asp?findID_=5 and Tea For Two With No Cups
      www.eye-books.com/catalog2.asp?findID_=11 both of which have been reviewed
      in London Cyclist.
      Still not convinced? Well in addition to me and my chap - both Southwark
      Cyclists, Jon Davies � Lambeth Cyclist, and ex-LCC chair was there, too.
      Regards
      Rebecca

      Friday 1 to Sunday 3 December
      Fri 6pm-9.30pm; Sat 10am-9.30pm; Sun 10am-5pm at Clements
      Yard, Iliffe Yard and Peacock Yard, London SE17
      Hold back on buying some of your more special presents,
      until you've seen the unique Christmas gifts from designers,
      artists, makers and publishers at a special workshop sale.
      The cinnamon tang of mulled wine and mince pies will scent
      the misty December air in the truly Dickensian setting of
      the cobbled Pullens Yards. The Pullens is one of London's
      longest established workshop sales. The weekend event will
      feature forty or more open workshops, including gold and
      silversmiths, couture and designer clothing, glassware and
      ceramics, graphics, fine arts, photography, book publishers,
      fashion and furniture.
