Affordable, awesome, innovative British millinery and affordable to boot. Don’t ask me to choose my favourite piece as I can’t. Pearl and Swine well worth checking out.
Mr Gugu & Miss Go sell a range of incredible printed sweatshirts. A spin off shop from their massively random Sexy Sweaters blog that combines sweatshirts, great imagery & photoshop to make addictive browsing. 45 Euro these novelty sweatshirts are so random, and utterly brilliant, I have ordered the burger one to replace December’s traditional Christmas jumper. I secretly want the weed one as well despite the fact it is veering perilously close to bad taste and has ‘please stop and search me’ written all over it.
Great PR here from Firebox with the timing of their Tube Tent – one of those products it would be worth stocking for the online traffic driving alone. This approach is something they do a fair bit with POA products such as Project Utopia and the bullshit of the million pound pens. It’s £1999 but you can fit 72 people in it, and I guess it would be pretty easy to spot in that festival field.
If you click through you’ll see they have lots of other great tents such as the watermelon one – however for sheer ability to find in a festival the Titanic tent is my absolute favourite, but at almost £8,000 I can dream right?.. Only concept images are available to date and it also comes with Iceberg tents (amazing right). I have always said great concepts start with a brilliant name.
Below Stairs of Hungerford is where I suspect some serious cooking & foodie geeks hang out not to mention collectors of Kitchenalia – I suspect if Sam Bompas visited he would never leave. It’s the beautiful antique copper jelly moulds I have fallen for – but £500 for one is never going to happen!!!
If money was no object eh?! In the meantime you can drool or wonder WTF online at some of the below… Click image to find out more.

These bikes from Jan Gunnenweg are made from 95% timber (and that includes the asymmetrical wooden wheels, handle bars, pedals yadda yadda yadda) are simply STUNNING. POA but they take 200 hours each to create so one can guess they wont be cheap. Think of it as investment in a work of art rather than an eye wateringly expensive (but BEAUTIFUL) bike!
The Riding crop scent (like all of ours, in our somewhat humble opinion) is right on the barrelhead. That wonderful worn leather aroma. This was a naughty name and we couldn’t resist. Heck, who knows what mischief you can get into with this one.
