The year I discovered Sagmeister


London town (E1+E2)

First of these types of posts from me – just been checking out Poppytalk and came across what seems like a never ending links and posts for shops, markets and pretty cool stuff to look at, peruse and visit in E1 + E2. Definitely something that I MUST DO on an upcoming Sunday! So here is the abbreviated version…

Sunday Up Market: The Old Truman Brewery, E1 6LQ
‘140 stalls selling fashion, accessories, crafts, interiors and music, it is undoubtedly one of London’s most exciting and imaginative markets.’ Open every Sunday 10am-5pm.

Selected shops:
Handmade Interiors: Cheshire St, E2 6EH
RyanTown: 126 Columbia Rd, E2 7RG
Vintage Heaven + Cake Hole: 82 Columbia Rd, E2 7QB
A.Gold: Cool sandwich shop: 42 Brushfield St, E1 6AG
Treacle: Cupcake shop: 110-112 Columbia Rd, E2 7RG

and although not quite E1 or E2 it seems a good place to end the day at:
Drink Shop & Do: 9 Caledonian Rd, N1 9DX

Finds found + written + photographed by: Stephanie Levy on Poppytalk, Andrea (Lotus Events) on Poppytalk (123 – 4), Ana Maria on Poppytalk.
