The last few months have been so hectic for Colporter: the Moyser Rd Pop-up, joining Northcote Road Antiques Market and sourcing enough to stock both places. All with my little sidekick Hattie in tow.
We have been delighted with the response from people seeing our stuff in a real, rather than online, shop. It especially warms the cockles when someone really “gets” the quirky things we like too. So when Ben, from the eponymous Ben’s Canteen got in touch to talk about a collaboration we were giddy.
We had just vacated our storage/pop up in Tooting so it was super timing.
Ben and Sarah have kitted out the restaurant in a very stylish manner with some Colporter-esque items so our wares work well in the airy and light space.
We have popped some of our smaller items on a couple of shelves. Now St John’s Hill residents can eat, drink and shop. In a few weeks we may shake things up and change what is in there so be sure to visit frequently!
So far I have only sampled the Skinny Flat White and a Mushroom and Goats Cheese Sandwich (both excellent). I can see we will be popping in to our new pop up rather too frequently with grub and coffee this good!
Once we have settled in the plan is to hold a regular Vintage sale here with some larger pieces from our range. Watch this space…
