One of the wonderful things about seeing London by bike is that if you see something that catches your eye, you can just pick a safe spot to stop, pull over, and lock up your bicycle while you investigate.
One the left is an image I took of a wonderful shop on Camberwell Road. If any of you have been watching The Apprentice you might remember episode 4 when the teams had to ‘upcycle’ vintage stock (read the Guardian Live Blog for a reminder on how not to use the Union Jack on furniture). They might have done well to take a few tips from this store as even the undeniably over-the-top chairs seem covetable.
The owners were lovely, and as I hadn’t locked my bike they kindly volunteered to keep an eye on it for me whle I explored the shop interior, even offering to bring it in for me. Pay them a visit at 152 Camberwell Road, 0207 701 2413.
