Arts, crafts and such
  • Hollow Contemporary Art will be opening in April 2005
  • Islington High Street has to be the best place to buy antiques in London. Firstly the people who have shops/stalls there are nice and actually try to help you. Secondly, having checked out other parts of London, the antiques are less than half the price.
  • stephen einhorn. handcrafted silver jewellery. good stuff not the usual crap. he does tiny little handgun pendants.
  • Tony Hart has his own gallery on Upper Street, Hart Gallery - haven't been there so don't know what it's like.
  • There's quite a bit of this... it is Islington Daaaaahling after all: but I'm buggered if I can remember where. There is some street that goes between upper Street and Essex Road which has soe nice stuff on it, and the antique market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Generally lots to find, Islington can be quite good for just pottering around for that.
  • Try Diva at the bottom end of Upper Street for clothes and cards/gifts.
