Mollie Makes visits: J&B The Shop

Planning a trip to London this weekend? Blogger Leigh Metcalf visits J&B The Shop on East London’s Columbia Road

Not only is East London’s Columbia Road home to one of London’s most famous flower markets, but also a number of wonderful, independent shops. One such business, owned by Jessie Chorley and Buddug Humphreys, is J&B The Shop.

Visiting J&B The Shop is like hopping into an old story book, of a tale woven with so many of our favourite things – vintage linens, paper, buttons, bits and bobs.

Their eclectic collection also includes Buddug’s theatrical headpieces and Jessie’s Mon Mariage wedding stationery.

The two very talented shop owners, first met in an art and design foundation course in Bangor, North Wales. With common interests and similar narratives running through their work, they started a stall at Broadway Market in 2005. Since 2010, they’ve had their very own store front at number 158A.

Heading to the big smoke for the weekend? Visit J&B The Shop , 158A Columbia Road, London, E2 7RG
