Had a busy weekend taking a look at the venues for this week's Raja and Rani shopping events. 

Firstly we stopped by 3 Fournier Street, the location for this weekend's The Laundry Room Pop Up. The venue look's fabulous, an Georgian townhouse right in the heart of Spitalfields. We've dropped off a selection of our vintage kantha quilts, silk scarves, shawls and embroidered cushions which will be available to buy on Saturday 3rd - Sunday 4th December.  3 Fournier Street is the location of decorative artist and designer Marianna Kennedy's space, you can see more images of this unique location in this World of Interiors article.

Notting Hill was our second stop, to see the 20th Century Theatre, the location for the Notting Hill Design Fair, starting this Thursday 1st December. Set in a prime location, we'll be there for 3 days selling our fabulous vintage collection to shoppers looking for alternative gifts this Christmas! Better get a move on selecting goodies for this one....

Notting Hill is calling…….

Lovely vintage kantha cushions

We'll be at the Notting Hill Design Fair for 3 days next week, selling our Kantha quilts, cushions, and luxurious silk scarves and shawls, all handcrafted from vintage sari fabrics. The perfect place to start shopping for your Christmas gifts!

There'll be lots of other designers there too, selling jewellery, handmade cards, hand thrown tableware, unusual children's toys and much more!

If that wasn't enough, Hummingbird Bakery and Rococo Pod have scrummy cakes and coffee on offer whilst you shop for your Christmas gifts.

Forgot shopping on the boring high street, this is going to be a lot more fun! See you there!

Notting Hill Design Fair, 20th Century Theatre: Thursday 1st December 12-8pm, Friday 2nd December 10-7pm and Saturday 3rd December 10-6pm.
