Young shoppers were egging people on to shell out on local produce over the Easter weekend.
Twin sisters Katya & Mia Tzannes, both nine, pictured above, dressed up in Easter masks and headed to Haverstock Hill where a giant Easter Egg was on display all of last week to encourage shoppers to support local traders.
Artists from Hampstead School of Art created two giant eggs as part of the “Shop Indies this Spring” campaign. The eggs, one in Flask Walk, and one in Haverstock Hill, were created by painter Malcolm Willett and his artist daughter Lissy Willett.
Members of the Hampstead and Belsize Town teams had asked people to take a “selfie” alongside the eggs and upload them to instagram with the hashtag #Hampstead or #Belsize Park. The best, to be judged next week, will win a bottle of champagne and an Easter picnic basket.
Town team chairman Jessica Learmond-Criqui, said: “Its a cracking way to support our local traders!”
