So this is very late, but here are some photos from my mini trip to London and what I bought.
I totally made a mental note to visit Kioskafe, the new magazine shop/cafe by the people behind Monocle – and then I forgot all about it. Luckily, Laura happened to mention it was nearby and we doubled back to find it. It’s stacked full of interesting looking magazines from around the world and even print-on-demand newspapers. I could easily go mad here if I didn’t already have a big pile of unread magazines taking over my coffee table.
I picked up the Monocle Travel Guide to Tokyo for yet more ideas and got a free tote bag and chocolate. The staff were so friendly as well – often these sort of shops are super snooty but Kioskafe is very welcoming so do visit if you can.
I am so obsessed with Sumikko Gurashi just now so I got some tape and a little towel because COME ON the polar bear is drawing a picture of the weed.
I also squeezed in a short visit to the Renegade Craft Fair before getting my train home. It was nice to see some of my crafty pals and meet some online friends like Yoyo the Ricecorpse and her bunnies.
And finally, Laura very kindly put me up and even enticed the local badgers over for a few visits. They are much bigger than I imagined!
