shopshoot - labour and wait

Last year when I was in London, I visited Labour and Wait and loved just about everything they had on the shelves. I would have loved to have taken photographs but the store was so tiny and so packed with shoppers that I had to wait for people to leave before I could squeeze into the shop. I knew there were plans to move to a larger store so when I knew I'd be visiting London in 2011, I emailed the owners asking if I could shoot their shop. 

Luckily the answer was 'yes' so I made my way to their new premises in Redchurch Street and promptly got myself very, very lost. I'd managed to leave my copy of the London A-Z back home in Sydney so I followed my nose and eventually found myself at the beautiful old building on Redchurch Street.

An eclectic array of well made items for the home with a bit of fashion thrown in for good measure.

Last year I came home with a vintage tea towel just like the one in the photo and it's featured quite a few times on my blog.

I was tempted by about everything in the shop but with limited space and 3 more weeks of travel I bought something small that could be tucked away. I've not had a chance to photograph it yet but it should appear in the next few weeks.

 Who would have thought taps, buckets and brushes could be this stylish? 

I'd love a milk pan just like this one. If any of my friends who read my blog are planning a trip to the UK any time soon, you know what you can get me!

Many thanks to the kind folk at Labour and Wait for letting me shoot their shop. Unfortunately, that's the last of my overseas shopshoots so I guess that means it's time to start hunting down some local places for you all. 

Happy Father's Day for Sunday Papa.

See you all again soonish.

Bye for now,

    This store reminds me of a store in Germany I think you'd like. (english site: I always go when I'm in Munich.

  2. Hi Juliana,

    thanks for the tip. Their website looks a little dangerous,
