S & M (Sausage and Mash - I'm coming back here!)
After S&M some champagne will be in order.
Then from the old into the new. The glass, the metal and the bustle of workers, with the Gherkin rising majestically in the distant.
It is amazing how this new mecca of offices sits amongst the old streets and churches. Walk away from Bishopgate and you enter a mix of run down meets avant garde. Juxtapositioned between tat and cool is Caravan at the beginning of Redchurch Street.
And it turns out Caravan has moved from its old address in Spitalfields Market to its new address up the road on Redchurch Street off Shoreditch High Street. Emily Chalmers is the delightful owner and offers a glorious selection of the old and new in her interiors shop.
Beautiful decor and space to browse in sheer delight at Caravan
My favourite find was the stag heads which I intend to pop back for!
It was a sheer delight for top bird blogger Wee Birdy (more of this in next post) with lots of birdy pieces to choose from. I had a lovely chat with Emily before a wander around Brick Lane prior to my almost fashionable late arrival at the House of Masquerade event party (surely 15 mins after doors open is late!)
