If you find yourself with a few hours to spare in South London then head to Crystal Palace and visit the eclectic and vibrant area called the Crystal Palace Triangle – you won’t be disappointed.
So what will I find there?! I hear you ask….well you will find an array of vintage and quirky shops, beautiful cafe’s and street art that will leave you gawping..look at that gorilla below – he looks well chuffed with himself!!
If you’ve lost your marbles after a busy week, you will be sure to find them in the ‘Bambino’ café where not only will you find a variety of vintage goodies including old school type writers and phones and some marbles for good measure, the staff are absolutely lovely and they will serve you a cuppa with love.
A collection of vintage suitcases, clothes and beautiful pictures can be found for sale outside the row of shops, there’s also shops selling up-cycled furniture and gifts that ooze creativity. Last Sunday morning I spotted a few of the locals driving around in vintage vehicles – you can’t beat a three wheeled car!
We could just feel Spring, creativity and fresh new beginnings in the air last Sunday as we strolled through the Crystal Palace Triangle, mixed with a large dose of vintage chic. As we sat outside a café soaking up some much needed vitamin D – anything seemed possible. Those are my favourite weekends.
