A pop up shop after make do mend’s own hearts has opened for three weekends only in Kings Cross this December. I made it over there this weekend to look around, buy nice things and run some making workshops, more of which, including pictures, in a later post.Drink, shop, do was an idea dreamed up in the lazy summer sunshine by Kirstie and Coralie and it has finally made it to fruition in time for all your Christmas shopping. The designers stocked here are all independant, making their wares by hand and often in the London area, so feel secure in the fact you are getting a unique piece when you buy from the girls. In fact, everything in the shop is for sale, including fixtures and fittings. You can sip cocktails or eat home made snacks while deciding on your purchase, as well as trying your hand at something creative, from printmaking to our own little corsages.
A word of warning, however, don’t get too caught up in the socialising, relaxing and creating as someone may have bought that covetable last minute gift for your loved one from under your nose. My tip is to buy first, then relax in a comfy chair and smugly admire your find while having a swig of mulled wine!
The Christmas Cooler at Drink, shop, do is open for its final weekend from Thursday 17th to Sunday the 20th, so get down there to check it out before it is too late.
