Ben de Lisi splashed onto the scene a few years back with his ultra-womanly column dresses: long, off-the-shoulder numbers that were sexy and classic. Untainted by success (de Lisi does his own PR) and aware of trends (he can often be spotted around the Brompton Cross and King's Road area), de Lisi also designs a line for Debenhams. Things to expect out of this little shop are beautiful fabrics like cashmere and taffeta in simple colors with sophisticated designs. Call number provided for information on store timings, and additional details.
As you can guess from the name, this unique museum's amusing displays of mechanical toys and sculptures border on the bizarre but it isn't really cabaret. What started out as a quirky crafts shop in Cornwall evolved into a popular exhibition of coin-operated mechanical toys. Described by the founders as the amalgam of art, craft and business, the shop sells handmade automata, mechanical wooden kits, books and videos.

The toys they keep just draw children towards them, the best example of which is the transparent rubber balls that are filled with confetti in every color; they just seem to walk off the shelves!
Truly overflowing with intriguing garments, most of which appear to be Miss Havisham's cast-offs, the Cornucopia shop is chock-a-block. Choose from vintage, floaty, or white numbers that resemble bridal-wear. The assemblage is so vast that the rails cannot possibly contain them all and floral dresses hang from the ceiling, and piles of clothing litter the floor. Be careful if you're catching a train at Victoria, as hours can pass quickly in transfixed time-wrap.

Declared by English comedian Alan Carr to be the "Harvey Nichols of charity shops", Crusaid really does live up to the hype. There is lots of great secondhand clothing, branded or otherwise, to choose from. There is a vast array of jeans and cotton shirts on offer, at prices that are nothing like the ones at the upscale department store to which this little charity shop has been compared. Some of the brands that donate their wares to this store are Ralph Lauren, Hackett and Nicole Farhi.
