Saturday saw me getting up at 5 am to catch the train to London to meet up with some friends. Friends who, until yesterday I had not met in real life.
6of us from here met up in Covent Garden to begin our tour of fabulous shops! We shopped til we dropped -well until our trains called us home - but it was a long, but very fun, day.
Cath KidstonI only managed to get 1 shot inside....just before someone got told off for taking pics!!! (MM is very brave so in our 2nd CK shop of the day a few more snaps were took)
After a short chatty walk via The Bead Shop and a vintage magazine store.....kicking ourselves that the Jackie mags of our youth weren't saved, we ended up here..All the Fun of the Fair
(I bought something knitted in here- decided that my 'i could make that' thoughts needed to get real!)
We made time for this at lunchtime.......
LibertyLove these cushions....
MacCulloch and Wallis
(Gok shops here - I didn't get interior pics as I was too busy fondling the haberdashery!!)V V Rouleaux
We really did have a great day - there was perhaps about 5 minutes of shyness when we first met, but I suspect that anyone would have thought we had been shopping together forever. Thanks girls for a fab day xx
We all got tons of inspiration from the places we visited and each other, I can't wait to get some of the projects from my head into reality!
We shopped til we dropped...In case anybody's interested I'll post some pics of my haul later?
