Commenter of the Week – Atelier 455

Go and say hello to the lovely Joanna at Atelier 455. Her blog is a treasure trove of design ideas with a vintage twist and she also sells her framed vintage ephemera through her Etsy shop. The rest of the time she is a freelance web consultant, who can be contacted here.

I’ve been particularly enjoying a series of blog posts she has written recently about Marylebone High Street and its truly wonderful shops. Last year I took myself down there to do my Christmas shopping and managed to do everything in a single afternoon which was gobsmackingly amazing. And it wasn’t too crowded either. If ever we launch an offline version of mirrormirror then Marylebone High Street would be the perfect place for the flagship store.

Before I go to Seattle I think I’ll depress myself entirely by doing a similar series on Notting Hill shops – watch this space.

    Yay! Thanks so much for your kind words – what a nice end to the week 🙂 Marylebone High Street is truly lovely. I don’t know Notting Hill very well at all so I’m already looking forward to your posts on the shops in the area!

    I might join you both and do little guide to the shops around ‘my patch’ – Columbia Road and Brick Lane (I am sure there is a book in there somewhere ‘the crafters guide to London’ maybe!)

    I think you’ve got something there… I would love to be able to access guides like that, and to plan day trips armed with insider info from impeccable sources! Bet you could get advertising…
