Labour & Wait


Its official, I am heading back to London in a few weeks time to catch up with folks at home and attend a wedding of some very lovely friends. As much as we love it here in Toronto, we cannot help but miss little things about the city that has been our home for over 5 years. Yes yes, London is hard and expensive, but it does have little pockets and gems the city over which are enough (on a good day!) to make you forget that sometimes it can be quite an unforgiving city. In honour of my upcoming trip to London, I thought it might be fun to share some of my favourite places on here; starting with this wonderful little shop.

Labour and Wait is a tiny little place hidden on the back lanes of Brick Lane in the East End. They sell beautifully selected home & kitchen items, gardening tools and the odd piece of stationary. They are also responsible for selling me the best Breton striped jumper I have ever found. They are utterly charming, always helpful and its quite simply a lovely place to visit.

Those enamel mugs have been top of my wish list for quite some time now and I am pretty sure that fishing bag would be a perfect place to stow all of our cameras and lenses. Sigh.
