kitchen shops

if you are looking for a great unusual gift for that person who seems to have everything, then go to the japanese knife shop in blanford street, W1.  it has an amazing display of knives for every occasion – you can even have something special engraved on the knife of your choice!  however there is a saying that giving knives or scissors is a sign of severing your friendship, if you do receive a knife for a gift, you are supposed to return the thanks by sending a penny – in effect, you are purchasing your gift!  depends how superstitious you are!

ernest wright and son have been making scissors for over 100 years – how beautiful to own a lovely pair – there is something so classic about the design for scissors, and such essential items.

I just love browsing through kitchen shops, especially lovely ones.  My favourites are Summerhill and Bishop in Holland Park – a beautiful provence style kitchen shop but with a simple modern style, labour and wait - on Redchurch Street- a more utilitarian shop, quite retro and shaker like;  toast home -  lovely collection of hamman towels, ceramic tableware  and glasses;   Gill Wing in islington also has a wide range of  functional kitchen items.  pedlars – in Portobello and selfridges, again a lovely collection of vintage style kitchen and classic finds, and of course the wonderful Baileys Home Store in ross on wye.
