The father type chose the next stop for us on Thursday -- East London, to see the artsy areas and the old Spitalfields Market.
Even place names give me a thrill.
Old Spitalfields Market.
A stall of hand knitted baby items.
English fast food, a pie shop.
This was across the street.
I love the old buildings everywhere.
We stumbled across this -- my first Etsy pop up shop!
So many talented men and their wares inside.
The father type got this little notebook specially printed with whatever word he wanted. Love that little printing press. Brings back memories of my junior high school printing class, still one of my favorite classes ever.
Love these baskets too.
This is outside -- I believe this area was the Truman Brewery Market.
Scenes from the walk back to the tube station.
If you called a number, the goat would talk to you to tell you his history and reason for being.
Love the look of this shop.
A shot of the Gherkin. So many interesting shaped buildings in London -- the Shard, the Walkie Talkie, the Gherkin. lol!
Saw this in the tube station on the way back to the flat. The boy child loved the Mr. Men series as a child.
Chocolate from one of the Etsy sellers at the pop up shop. This chocolate kept me going on the trip home! So yummy! I think I'm developing a taste for coffee. Which is saying a lot for me!
One more day!
