Caravan: Shopping in Style...

I don't know about you, but, personally, shopping is
not my idea of fun...that is
unless, it's shopping of a particular kind:
outdoor farmers' markets, thrift shops, etsy, "brocantes" and
independent stores
– online and on the high street -

Caravan in east London is one such store


.Browsing in these places is not like the usual shopping experience;
shopping here feels like an adventure
I always find something to please family and friends...
I love the whole concept created by Emily Chalmers,
who started out as an interiors stylist.
Do checkout their site, it's a real treat..!

I too love thrift shops and little musty old looking bric a brac shops. For me they are treasure troves to browse through. The link appears to be broken as it comes up with page not found.

How cute! I love little adventures like this. It helps me to have more hope in this world. (I live in a neighborhood (Greenwich Village) where every cute little adventure ma/pa store is being bought out by banks and boring nail salons.
Caravan restores some of my faith.
Thanks for sharing!
Take care,

Shopping is most definitely my idea of fun. However, shopping inside the Caravan looks absolutely fantastic! What a neat idea!
