I'm starting to get excited about this Wills-Moody Jumble Sale I recently heard about. Apparently, it is held once a month on a Sunday, later in the day for those of us with Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder (thanks Jess).
From what I've gathered, a traditional jumble sale is the British version of a North American rummage sale, but with a bar, late start, dj, and with the name Wills-Moody Rock and Roll Jumblesale, it sounds like a lot more fun. Almost everything is under £3!
Looks like the next one will be on October 2nd at the Lexington.
Sounds like it would be right up Aynsley Amy's alley.
Speaking of Aynsley, The Automat is promoting some "dreamy" items right now (perfect additions to the late-night wardrobes of Delayed Sleep Phase Disorderists).

(I took the photo above)
Last week I just happened upon Labour and Wait while out and about in Shoreditch. I'd already seen the website and was so excited to just run into the shop. I want everything in this shop "specialising in timeless and practical products." Specifically, these items below...
I collect shot glasses, even though I don't like doing shots! This one, however, is useful as it has measurements for teaspoons, tablespoons, etc...and only £4. Definitely worth the splurge for the new apartment (only 11 days left!!!).
I definitely want another stove top espresso maker for the new apartment. The Moka Express is the original model and the still the best selling today. The £28 ($45 CDN) is a far cry from my old $5 Canadian Tire model!
The apartment we are staying in came furnished with tiny little tea cups. This enamel cup looks like a great size for a proper cup of tea.
I would also love to own one of these bags. Made by a traditional British fishing and gaming bag manufacturer, Labour and Wait chose this design from their archives.
Or this leather satchel...
