Interesting shops from around the world

Caravan. 3 Redchurch Street. London E2 7DJ.

I met Emily a few weeks ago at Holly from Decor8 blog’s book party at Liberty. Emily’s house is in a lot of books and we were once in the same book as her – it’s a little Japanese book called Lovely Styles of Living Spaces.

Emily had the most amazing orange bag on – by Shanghai Trio who create beautifully crafted bags using vintage materials. The requirement for such an orange bag sent me along to her shop the next Saturday, Kevin happy to pay a visit to Allpress down the road for coffee.

Bagpuss the cat was there to greet everyone while we had a little look around the Caravan of lovely treasures. An ever-changing stock of unique and interesting pieces from Emily’s network of designers, makers and suppliers around the world. There were beautiful french wire baskets (around £12) and birdcages (around £20) – and some incredible scandinavian knitted softies (£69).

Next visit to Redchurch Street I’m going to book myself a manicure and pedicure (it’s £37 for 1 and a half hours) at The Painted Lady – they also do vintage haird styling – yay!
