Window Shopping – Labour and Wait, Shoreditch, E2.

I was just a little bit giddy when I saw a photograph of Labour and Wait posted by one of my newfound instagram friends and knew I had to go and see it for myself.  I could sense it would be very much a shop I would enjoy and I wasn’t disappointed.Labour and Wait 1

The sense of excitement starts right from the very beginning, Labour and Wait are housed in an old Truman Brewery pub once called the Dolphin.  The gorgeous green glazed bricks call to me to quicken my pace and enter. Labour and Wait 2

As I wander around the lovely assistant makes me feel most welcome as I ask for permission to photograph. Labour and Wait 3

The owners Rachel and Simon wanted to source products that fitted with their ethos of functionality, quality and honesty, a place where we as customers could buy well designed timeless products that would mellow and improve with age.  Labour and Wait 8

I loved its concept and execution, Labour and Wait 7

many of the products I’d grown up with or were familiar to me from my grandparents using them. Labour and Wait 6

There was even a tiny corner for interesting books. Labour and Wait 5

And I do love enamel pans, Labour and Wait 4

I may have treated myself to the small but tall blue milk pan on the right, well it would be rude not to wouldn’t it.  If you get the chance go, you’ll love it.
