Chiswick - stick to it!

Dada is very nice shop filled to the brim with cds/films/vinyl and other bits and bobs, the staff are kind and the windows are covered with a lovely red sticker pattern so when sun pours in, red shapes are reflected around the shop

if you find yourself in Chiswick, make a pitstop!

the nearest tube stop is Chiswick Park (district line)

and down the road, headed towards Hammersmith is another golden find....Outsider Tart!

It's a wonderful bakery/cafe/artspace run by two american friends that love baking - - - go go go!

Down by the river...

It's taken a silly amount of time for a note to be posted about the opening at the Riverside...sorry! But here are some pictures taken kindly, by Velvet Sneaker member, John Williams!

Thank you to every bean that came down and to wise Owl Lynden for piecing it all together!

The drawings will be up for a few more weeks than planned so take a closer peek if you're ever in Hammersmith!
