SMUG turns 3!

One of my favourite stores in London, UK is celebrating their 3rd birthday next week! To kick off the festivities, SMUG will be releasing a few new exclusives including the hand screened Guinea Pig Hanky by Thornback & Peel and the Jeeves Cup & Saucer and Sandwich Plate by Ali Miller. Too cute! Can’t wait to stop by and see what else owner Lizzie has been up to!

Looking for something to do on Wednesdays or Saturdays? Make it a day and stroll through Camden Passage!

SMUG :: Pop Up Print Shop


For the upcoming holiday season, SMUG will be launching a Pop Up Print Shop upstairs from their Camden Passage store. This is the perfect place to find limited editions, open runs, screen prints, digital prints, letter pressed works and giclee prints for prices between £6 to £45. The same space will also house an exhibition of SMUG exclusive prints specially made for the show by some of SMUG’s favourite graphic designers and illustrators including Donna Wilson (swoon!) and Linus Kraemer, to name a few.

The Pop Up will launch on Saturday, October 29th and continue through to January. For every three or more prints purchased, you will receive a free SMUG cotton tote. If you are new to SMUG, check out the shop tour I did with Ana Maria here.

Congrats Lizzie and Gemma! Can’t wait to check it out this weekend and start crossing off some names on the holiday list!

This morning we head to Camden Passage in Islington, a pedestrian thoroughfare dating back to the 18th century. Tucked between the vintage shops and busy eateries, you will find a quirky lifestyle store called SMUG.

Owned and run by Lizzie Evans, SMUG carries an eclectic mix of homewares, jewelry, paper goods, vintage furniture and kitchenware that are made mostly by London based makers. Lizzie also works with her favourite designers to create exclusives for SMUG including wooden owls by Matt Pugh and plush owls by Chloe Owens as pictured above.
