121 Upper St, Islington, London N1 1QP
It’s hard to know quite what to make of this delightful place: is it a cool vintage store that also stocks a wide range of toys and games, or a retro toy shop with a sideline in furniture restoration and classic design? Either way, there’s plenty here for kids and adults alike. Whether you’re shopping for a £5 novelty gift, some stylish stationery, a Christmas board game or a new kitchen table, something will almost certainly catch your eye. It’s mostly rooted in a mid-twentieth-century British aesthetic; don’t miss the basement, with its fabulous leather armchairs and sofas.
