Brixton corner shop...

London is what you want it to be. Or rather where you are. The vastness of this city means that you can change environments within one Tube ride. Mayfair or Brixton? Chelsea or Shoreditch? Notting Hill or Greenwich? Each part has its own personality, ethnic mix (though probably less of that in Mayfair), history, and vibe. Discovering London is like discovering lots of little cities and even after years here, I still feel as if I've only just scratched the surface...

Last Saturday Monsieur and I popped to Brixton. Brixton is probably not know as London's number 1 tourist attraction, but - like every town - it has its own charm and the bonus of a lovely "Village Market" full of fab little shops and restaurants.

One of these shops is Brixton Cornercopiaa fabulous little shop and tiny restaurant with an emphasis on local food and sustainability. All foods are handmade and ingredients sourced within a couple of miles. The shop also has a lovely choice of some of my favourite things: enamelware, beeswax candles, and jars - you can't go wrong with a nice jar - and the friendly atmosphere of a lovely old-fashioned corner shop. If you can't make it to Brixton, just click on the link to visit the website - not quite the same but still great ;-)
