In London we have Asprey on Bond Street. A Christmas shopping here could break most people's economies. Consumerism can actually be seen as a serious problem in our present society. If we go on consuming like we do our planet will not survive it. We are in a financial crisis at the moment and which way it is going to go is anybody's guess but traditionally we have used consumption as a way out and on to a new prosperity. It is a bit of a catch 22, wouldn't you agree? So what are we supposed to do? I think it is left partially to our own consciousness and the things at Asprey are beautiful no matter if you are going to buy them or not and have the opportunity to buy them or not.
