SOUND AS A POUND
We like the London Design Festival. The Pound Shop on Roman road is easily our favourite stop off so far. A wickedly feel good little pop up shop featuring a medley of bright young things selling their wares for just a pound a piece. The brainchild of HOUSEHOLD and Sara Melin the pocket friendly shop makes new design friendly and affordable. Among the treasures we acquired for the princely sum of £1 a piece were an exquisite cup of freshly brewed coffee, a marvellous cake poster, a set of pin badges, some east end illustrated post cards and a trio of brilliantly funny bookmarks. We suggest you get down there with an empty shopping bag and a purse full of coins at your earliest convenience!
