In the Heart of Brixton

If you’ve been anywhere near Coldharbour Lane in Brixton over the past couple of weeks then you may have already spotted Turpentine, the new ‘creative retail hub’ which offers a whole host of goodies which have been handmade.
The store – formed by Amber Rogers, Alice Waters and Judith de Berker – originated as a pop-up, selling indie craft, art and giftware, and has now evolved into a shop with its very own permanent residence at 433 Coldharbour Lane. Their cute and quirky items have been created by almost 50 ‘indie-makers’ and range from £15 to £50 – so there’s something to suit every budget!
What’s even better, The Turpentine will run evening and weekend workshops on all sorts of arts & crafts, from jewellery-making and floristry to life-drawing and photography – all led by co-founder Judith de Berker, who attended Central St. Martins.
Pop on by to see it for yourself!

Something for the Weekend….

Whilst we’re all (impatiently) waiting for spring to finally show itself, why not keep in the warm this weekend by heading over to the Frock Me! Vintage fashion fair at Chelsea Town Hall? 
 It’s a great place to score some great vintage pieces and you’ll be rubbing shoulders with everyone from fashion students and models to A Listers (Yoko Ono, Kylie Minogue and Sophie Dahl are just some of the celebs to have been spotted having a rummage!). 
After a hard day’s searching you can even reward yourself with a cuppa from the pop up vintage tea room set up by Brighton’s Blackbird Tea Rooms. The perfect end to any shopping trip!
