Arts, crafts and such
  • A nice lot of shops along church and stoke newington high street have good stuff err, the herbal shop on church street being a good example, the pretentious art gallery is filled with snobby cunts however; a good tactic is to run in there and shout your head off at them, scaring them lifeless. A hobby certainly.
  • So many trendy, overpriced, poncey shops of this type...take your pick!!!
  • Affinity, the silver jewellery shop opposite Bar Lorca at the end of Church Street: nice stuff and I think they design/make it themselves.
  • Vortex Secondhand books (below the Jazz Club) on Church Street seems to have transformed itself into an Art Gallery. Nearly all the arty stuff is on Church Street.
  • Second hand bookshops tucked down an alleyway towards Clissold Park, rest of the shops are rather gimicky much the same
  • For Twee eastern stuff try Tana Mana.
