Home Goods

Just a few short blocks from Shoreditch High Street overground and Brick Lane Market is Labour and Wait. An East End jewel, the tiny shop presents an amazing range of home-good basics with almost museum-like reverence -- each individually showcased as a timeless marvel of form & function.

Not in the area?  Fear not -- Labour and Wait delivers (though not yet outside Europe).
