Lately this schlepping has taken me, not to the realms of Victoria (ok, but nothing really going for it!) but to the delights of Bloomsbury. Ideal in many ways! First of all because it is a gentle trot down the road from Euston Station, and second because it is near the British Museum (I am a convert) and there are some fab little shops in the little streets in front of the museum.
Here is just a mini taster.
West and Skye has some lovely modern tartans and tweeds.
Satchels and Co has, well , satchells! How retro.
And there is also a lovely shop called Edwards & Todd at 25a museum Street. Lots of prints, papers and cards with a 50's English feel to them. No photo but this link should give you a taste of the interior.
And last of all I thought I should share a christmas present with you. A lovely bowl by my good friend Andy Douglas, one half of Rob and Andy. The glaze is stunning, inside and out (spot the hares)
