The new Mary 'Queen of Shops' Living and Giving shop for Save the Children in Primrose Hill is gorgeous! The shop was previously inhabited by the fabrics and business of Ian Mankin, a natural and organic fabric shop, selling fabrics woven in Lancashire, where I still work part time (now relocated to expand our other shop in Fulham).
The transformation of the shop is stunning and I was amazed to see the fantastic change that has been created.
Well worth a visit: 109 Regents Park Road, London.
