I live in kings cross (west central london), and i have had trouble trying to get shop window work! just getting rejection at the moment!

Any advice or contacts anyone?

From my experience the people who have done well at this bought a round or part round from a retiring, you need a few to make it worth stopping the van.  Otherwise contact the store managers, leave a card and follow up at regular intervals, look for new malls and be the best on your block.

I agree with the fed man but if you find someone with a shop round make sure that it is properley priced as a few years ago i was looking at one in Surrey and the prices had not been put up for years Cry
