I love when another cool spot comes along to get the ‘ole shopping palpitations going and wow me with goodies and the latest is eco friendly hotspot, e-side .
Packed full of buys for the design conscious both big and small, there’s fashion, lighting and rugs, amazing seating, outdoor accessories, and a small but perfectly formed kids section.
Absolute favourites are the Toy Paper Bag Adventures which is a paper bag with a setting retrotastic setting and two characters to play with by designers Cocoboheme (check out Lu’s previous feature). There are 3 to choose from – a glasshouse, kitchen, and a sitting room in Africa for £4.90 each. All over like a rash!
Other favourites also by Cocoboheme include biodegradable bibs featuring whimsy patterns and creature silhouettes that can be composted when you’re done with them, £10.80 each and a selection of too cool for school chalkboard stickers including the turtle, £15.70, plus Mini Mello Stools hand made from bamboo by Ekobo that have storage capacity underneath (see our previous feature), £46.90. For adults, the standout favourite has to be their latex poufs by designer Ricrea, £69 which are basically upcycled from the latex discarded by the Italian shoe industry. Loving it!
