I'd quite like this chandelier in my bedroom, please.

After our delicious lunch at Story Deli and wandering around Spitafields market, Saskia, Abi, and I popped into Hurwundeki for a look around. A couple of months ago I went to their cafe in Bethnal Green, which is just beautiful, a mix between a deserted children's playground and an antique shop, so I knew I would love the boutique, too. Hurwendeki very classic, simple and eclectic store, selling both it's own brand and many vintage pieces. Just like Story Deli (oh, I'm making myself hungry), the decor is amazing; hats and jewelry hanging by hooks on old doors, antique objects storing various pieces, bare brick walls and some wonderful cellar type rooms downstairs stocking both men and womens clothes. The shop really is lovely, the majority of the pieces are out of my desired price range, but I would happily pay ten pounds for two wooly scarfs or around three pounds for a pair of lace gloves. I'm off to the Victoria and Albert Museum and perhaps for some lunch somewhere in Kensington later. How will you all be spending your Bank Holiday Monday? Love, Jazzabelle.

  2. I officially love this shop and can't wait to do my post on it. I found so many things I loved in there! I'm hoping to borrow Abi's shot of that hat I wore.

  11. This boutique looks so enchanting! A real classy treasure trove by the looks of it.
    I think I would quite like that chandelier in my bedroom too, you know my Auntie has a very old one not in use at her house. I have always admired it and wondered if anyway I could have it, but the costs to have it properly installed would just be too much.

    You know I didn’t buy many second hand finds in Brighton this weekend, apart from a couple of books. I am already planning a trip back next year though :)xx
