It's time to right a historical wrong. En Gedi Designs is a gift shop and boutique that opened earlier this year, but which has been shamefully (accidentally) omitted by us for the Best Local Newcomer 2010 vote. So even though it's not on the list, it's time to celebrate another of Ladywell's new arrivals.
Run by the lovely Angela and Lola, the shop sells a range of gifts and chocolates hand-made by Lola and clothes, sourced by Angela from France. Angela - who once ran a shop in Lewisham and now lives in Ladywell - explains that the shop will increasingly focus on selling clothes, which are her passion. They specialise in fashions "for mature women" - good quality clothes, made to last.
Having been open since the spring, they say they have enjoyed good support from the local community, with most of their customers living nearby.
Until December 31st, they are offering a free scented candle with every purchase over £30.
