I have had work at the Things British shop at Carnaby Street for some time but moved to the St Pancras Station shop at the end of February. I visited the shop last Saturday and took some photos of both my work and of St Pancras Station, so thought I would share them with you here.
For those of you who do not know Things British shops are a platform for designer makers to sell their beautiful and unique gifts, all made in Britain. Buying a gift for a loved one or looking for something special for yourself, but you want something that is not mass produced then this is a perfect place to start. Buying handmade means you are buying something that has been lovingly crafted, often has took a long time to make and many more hours of thought and passion to achieve the final result.
Below is a picture of my shelf at the St. Pancras Shop, but the beauty of the shop is you will find the work of many designer makers in one place and stock is changing all of the time. You can not often go into a shop and the retailer be able to tell you where in the country it was made and by who as well as something about the craft involved in making it; Things British are refreshing in their knowledge about the products they sell.
St Pancras Station is a beautiful grade 1 listed building which open in 1868, if you are visiting you should take time to admire both the older architecture and the additions of artists work mainly on the upper level where Things British is located.
St Pancras now has great selection of places to shop and eat so if you are at Kings Cross Station passing through or at St Pancras it is worth giving yourself some extra time to take it all in. Do not forget to visit Things British and check out my work!
