Shopping in London

Hi everyone and please forgive me for leaving so long between posts. I have only 'lame' excuses so I won't make any.

I really enjoyed my visit to Spitalfields. This Victorian Market Hall is one of the finest surviving in London and provides fashio, antiques and food to suit all tastes.




Friday was fashion day and I particularly liked Lucys' collection at http://www.neverfullydressed.com/
These were beautiful feminine pieces at great prices and a bit different from the High Street and its mass production!




Next stop Brick Lane and what a great shop I found. It was stacked from floor to ceiling with rolls of fabric, it went back for what looked like miles. The wonderful lady who runs it was so helpful and scared us to death as she climbed a rickety ladder to reach just the one I wanted.

I bought some lovely sari fabrics and soft cottons for making scarves to be part of my 2010 collection.
We finished our shopping with a scumptious Greek lunch. What a treat!!
