part 2: hopped the pond for vintage

My lovely long weekend away with Dad in London served a few purposes. One, time with my favorite dad:

{Phonebooth Dad called Mom from 30+ years ago when they were dating. Collect. Mom's Dad was unimpressed; Dad & I at the V&A museum; On the steps of our London home}

Two, time in tea shops to dream, plot & plan for Dean Street Society. I always think better over scones & real Devonshire cream:

Three, wandering one of my favorite cities in the world where I've been lucky enough to live & study:


And four, doing some shopping. Both window shopping {these made me dream of ladies who lunch on Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket excursions with dandy gentlemen in boat hats}:

... & for vintage shopping which, after research & map plotting, I decided Brick Lane in the East End was my best bet. I made 3 sweet purchases, 2 of which I'll show you next week:


Anyone have other vintage spots in London to recommend for my next trip? Or other cities I should hit up for lovely but affordable vintage? I am not beyond making travel plans for vintage!
