Brixton East (by night)
It’s all go in Brixton just now. Not two minutes after blogging about Brixton Village, My Friends House was invited to a party just along the road from it, at Brixton East. It’s Andy Luckett’s warehouse-turned-temporary furniture shop, which is open every weekend (fridays-sundays) until Christmas eve. Andy was in attendance at the party last night, resplendent in his Christmas jumper.
He used to buy antiques for Cath Kidston and lives upstairs from the shop in what our host told us is quite a fabulous flat. You can imagine since the stuff he is selling is a great mix of one-off 50′s kitchen cabinets, kids desks, great old signs and vintage fabrics.
That desk is only £95.
The warehouse, built in 1871 is a splendid spectacle in itself. Come the new year the shop will be transformed into something new, so get yourself down there quick.
Brixton East is at 100 Barrington Road , SW9.
