We had a crazy time at We Built This City last weekend hosting an Alfred & Wilde pop-up shop in their pigeon coop. As it was Halloween we cracked out the fancy dress and made our very own London-themed photobooth for unsuspected visitors. We'll be informing one lucky participant by email to let them know they have won an Alfred & Wilde goody bag.
I am over the moon that my favourite London-themed gift store has returned to Carnaby Street for a summer pop-up. The team has assembled a collection of the finest and coolest London prints, ceramics, cards, tote bags, pigeons and tea bags (amongst other wonderful things) that you'll find anywhere in the city. It simply blows other tourist-tat shops out of the water. And to top it off they pride themselves on working with independent designer-makers and creatives, making it a real community asset. Let's hope the tourist hoards agree!
Check out my top picks below (excuse the dodgy photography, there was a lot of free booze at the launch):
