Essential Nappies

This was Essential Music...
14 months ago this was Essential Music, the best record shop in Greenwich. After a year empty, it’s now a posh baby shop.

While I genuinely wish the people behind Beauty and the Bib well – hey, it’s not a crap chain store, at least – there’s something a bit depressing about Greenwich Market’s slow shift into selling lifestyle accessories. A sign of the times we live in, I suppose. I hope the new shop thrives, but another bit of the old Greenwich seems to have faded away.

  1. While I wish them all the best, there is nothing in there that I could hope to afford! I’ll have to stick to NCT sales and hand me downs I’m afraid. I’m just not yummy enough for Greenwich (as I realise when I’m charging round the park on a Friday trying to keep C asleep that bit longer). It’s like a different world.

  2. I was in “Pets and the City” on Friday. Now there’s a sign there’s people in this borough with too much money.

    Even the Flying Duck has gone upmarket!

  3. Great pity about Essential Music, didn’t go in there often but always seemed to purchase something when I did.
