Friday Find: I Love London lunchbox
Readers, I have a bad habit. Some of you may share it - the compulsion to throw my disposable (and sometimes indisposable) income in the direction of superfluous kitchen items. London enables this addiction - from Columbia Road to Ladbroke Grove there are emporiums of domestic loveliness lurking all over the city. So I'm channeling this addiction into a new series - Friday Finds. Cool, quirky and useful food finds from around the smoke.
First up is the adorable plastic I Love London lunchbox above from Constructive Lives, a homewares store on the corner of Portobello Road and Golborne Road in W10. The typeface and the 60s-y illustrations put an instant smile on my face - the artist isn't credited, but the illustrations reminded me of the sketches in a series of children's books about a bear called Albert who lived in a flat in Marylebone. If someone can tell me who the illustrator is, or even that I didn't dream the ursine bachelor Albert, I'd be very grateful!
You can't miss the shop - just look for the place that looks like an inside-out Rubicks cube...
Check back here next Friday for another find!
