East London that is! I just thought it would be nice to share a few things from the almost annoyingly arty area that is Hackney. Columbia road is lovely, Bethnal Green road has some great shops, but the best stuff is found by walking a bit slower and looking at the walls around you, sometimes you have to be very observant as the smaller things often go unnoticed.
Local is lekker!
Having just got back from South Africa I thought it would be only fair to share the pictures of the great stuff I saw there. I spent every last Rand I had on art and all manner of handmade objects. Not a "made in china" mass manufactured souvenir in sight. I bought stuff from Art Galleries and Co-operatives where a lot of things are made from low cost materials and are just the most incredible pieces of craft work. I was absolutely in my element and really quite jealous of these peoples skills and ideas!
These people look like there having a very nice time!
Even the rubbish bins were amazing!
