Next weekend Euan and I are going for a weekend to London - it is really to have a look at the Top Drawer trade fair at Earls Court (I am on the lookout for quality vases and planters) - but I would also like to have a look round some offbeat type shops while we are there without the children.
I want to visit shops which are the result of someone's dream, quirky, bootstrapped and full of things that the owner cares about. Shops to be passionate about. Things rather than fashion.
But . . .I don't know London that well and these are not the type of shops that can afford big advertising campaigns that reach Stirlingshire.
Can anyone suggest candidates?
