Few and far : buy less / buy better

Sister of Sir Terence Conran and married to Chef Antonia Carluccio, Priscilla Carluccio opened Few and Far in 2008. The store is one of the most interesting retail proposals of the moment in London (even if not very new), offering a creative mix of inimitable pieces from artisans including tableware, furniture, toys, clothes and jewellery. 
.
No designer names or brand logos in the store; the products, which are sourced in Europe, Morocco, Mongolia and India, reflect a high level of manufacturing as well as a deep love for beautiful materials, textures and shapes.
.
The inspiring and theatrical displays are in constant change, creating excitement every time you visit. If you are around at this time of the year, don’t miss the Christmas Market, full of good surprises. I highly recommend the tiara; a real hit !

Little East Londoner

IMG_2410

Last I week I was walking on Redchurch Street when I met a fun little person. It’s been a while since I published kids in the streets, maybe because I was turned down too many times lately by parents who didn’t want their kids on internet (a decision that I respect).
