Jessie and Buddug, the shop

The main reason we went to london at the weekend was to visit jessie and Buddug's shop  on Columbia Road in the east end of London


it was amazing, full of handmade treasures and I spent an hour just taking it all in.

I love wearing  brooches and there were plenty of hand made ones to choose from,

the shelves were full of journals all made by Jessie,

hand stitched pictures on the walls

and mirrors with bow ties,

you wouldn't find another one of these, a mirror made from a book.

Of course you can't lurk that long without buying a little something!

Can't wait to hang this Christmas stocking up  made from a blanket with a cute little pug on the front,

and some gift wrap and cards

and I think I might find a couple of other gorgeous bits from santa in my stocking...

Luckily for me mr lucey loves shopping too and while I was in the shop he'd had a wander about and said "we must come back tomorrow to visit the famous  Columbia Road flower market" isn't he just a gem!!

WOW! What a stunning shop, how could you ever decide what to buy?
(I'm still reeling to think Mr Lucey actually likes shopping!)

Aww brilliant this brings back great memories!! Before we moved back 'up north' we lived on Victoria Park Road for nearly ten years. Just a few minutes away from Columbia Road. In those days it was just the flower market and a few shops. We used to stroll over every Sunday morning to buy bagels and flowers for our flat.

Happy times :-)

There are some ace shops there now, it's very trendy! Also some good old fashioned East End pubs where they still have roast potatoes on the bar and seafood.

I love going back when we are down in London, glad you enjoyed it xxx

Wow! I have to be honest I totaly make a point of avoiding Bethnal Green/Hackney (my ex was from there and I found it a depressing place lol!) but I may get over my phobia to visit that darling little shop! It's only a short drive from me so I could get back quickly! lol!!!

Glad you are having a lovely time!

I`ve been in that shop when they first opened up about 3 years ago and I`m so glad to see them still going strong. The girls are very talented and deserve to do well. Lucky you being able to buy something - by the time I got there, my pockets were empty!Maybe next time.
