Places to Visit in london : Jessie Chorley and Buddug columbia road.

Whilst me and mum visited columbia road a few weeks ago, I spotted the beautiful Jessie Chorley and Buddug shop. I had been an admirer of there online shop and blog since I graduated in 2010. I am always really tempted to ask to take photos in beautiful shops to share with you, but being a shy human I stop myself. But I just had to share this beautiful shop with you all. Its along the street from Ryan Town at the end of columbia Road. 

Now if you are a lover of hand made trinkets, beautiful vintage dresses and delicately bound notebooks, then Jessie and Buddug's shop is for you. I did buy myself a lovely vintage floral dress for a bargain, I told mum for my 25th I want one of Buddug's Enamel necklaces, so delicate and so beautiful. I was  bit obsessed with the boat plate which I think I may have to purchase for when I move hello house warming gift for myself. 

The shop itself is a treasure trove of hand-made galore, it felt like walking into an Aladdin's cave of hand-made perfection, its always so lovely to find places in london that embrace the hand-made ethos that I love. It was a pleasure to chat to the lovely Jessie about her shop and creations. I thoroughly suggest if you are in the columbia road area to take a peek, their window displays are just beautiful. It would be an absolute dream to own a shop like the one Jessie and buddug run.
