It's so nice to be saying this again. Local Christmas Shopping in Crystal Palace is on! As most of you know, SE19Lates had to take a break in 2020 and all our local businesses had to deal with two punishing winter lockdowns.
So, it's great to be back with a (mostly) triangular trail of in-store Christmas events for you to enjoy on 2, 9 and 16 December.
All you need to do is pick a starting point and follow your nose and the twinkling window lights.
Come and join us for launch night on Thursday 2 December from 5pm until 8pm or later.
New for 2021
We're delighted to be joined by the Crystal Palace Antiques Centre on Jasper Road. A huge and airy space to explore and hunt down pieces to style your home for Christmas or 2022 or find a unique gift. Close by is SE19 Lates regular Decorum for stylish, minimalist and industrial-style homeware and furniture; with Theatro, one of Crystal Palace's newest restaurants and bars on Westow Hill nearby, who will be serving 2-4-1 signature cocktails and a special #SE19Lates dinner offer after 8pm on Thursdays for shoppers.
Also new for 2021
A much expanded SE19 Lates indoor and outdoor venue at Haynes Lane, featuring the Haynes Lane Vintage market hall for fashion, furniture, homeware and collectables, Alan's Antiques (glassware a speciality), Free the Gallery, and in the yard: The Walkthrough and a special outdoor Christmas Eco Night Market and mulled wine, fuelled by sweet and spicy goodness from The Store Cupboard, which is now part of The Walkthrough.
Head back up the lane to Westow Street treats from Greece at Kamari The Authentic Greek, a sensory treat at Haven Wellness, and a pitstop at Freshwater's Cafe (@Real Nappy Life), who are all joining SE19 Lates for the first time this year.
The Secret Garden will also be joining us on the trail until 7pm for all your festive foliage needs and a wide selection of Christmas decorations. Skintouch Salon, Church Road will be welcoming customers on all three SE19Lates nights too, with treats and great special offers on each night.
...to these #SE19 Lates returning favourites: Urban Cellar, and Elkins gift shop on Church Road; and on Westow Street: Simon Carter, The Bookseller Crow, Merlin Shoes, a very Christmassy time at The Indigo Tree for a wide selection of gifts for all. Round the corner back on Westow Hill, the winter window wonderland that is A L'Etage 2, with legendary Danish recipe mulled wine being served and beautiful selection of handcrafted gifts and jewellery.
With three evenings to experience Christmas shopping at #SE19Lates this year, you'll get the chance to space out your shopping and visit them all. The only decision is where to start (and where to get dinner afterwards, once you've filled your shopping bags with locally shopped goodies).
Come and join us on Thursday 2, 9 and 16th December.
It'll be a Blue Christmas without you...

Recent government announcements mean that you will be required to wear face-coverings when indoors in shops. Please do be mindful of the needs of those around you. Hand sanitiser will be available.
We recommend that you take a free Lateral Flow Test for additional peace of mind before visiting anywhere likely to be busy over the festive period to help curb the spread in our community.
