london, uk :: columbia road

I am up to my eyeballs wrapping up the last wedding for our season and sewing projects for the upcoming IDSwest. Hope to pop  in before the end of the week to show you what I am working on, but until then, here are some more pictures from London (UK)!

Home of the famous Columbia Road Flower Market, this small area of independent shops are normally only open on the weekends with Sunday being the busiest with the market. If you have the time, I always suggest taking a stroll on both a Saturday and Sunday. It’s like night and day. You won’t even realize that you are at the same place!

Some favourites include Elphick’s (Sharon has amazing taste and I admit to spending too much on my last trip!), Suck and Chew (love the name and the decor), Treacle (click here for my Poppytalk shop tour), Beyond Fabrics (my go to place for sewing notions), and Vintage Heaven / Cake Hole (the name says it all), and Jones Dairy (pretty sure that cat lives there).

 

Treacle

If you missed it yesterday, our next London shop tour of Treacle is up on Poppytalk! This was our first visit to Columbia Road on a Saturday instead of Sunday, the day of the infamous Columbia Road Flower Market. It was like night and day! The streets and shops along here are beautiful, like most of London (UK), so if you do have the extra time, take a stroll and pop in for a treat at Treacle!
