Can we just take time to appreciate the cutest shop I may have found in London!
I found this adorable place in a place just off Carnaby Street called Kingly Court , the area had a few small boutiques and shops and was so empty. Which I don’t even know why because all the shops there were so unique and far more appealing than the outside world!
But this was my favourite, the layout, the idea behind it, how it just looked so inviting and comforting. This is why I loved London and always will.
Lots of villages in the UK have turned red telephone boxes into mini libraries, just take a book and leave one behind.

John Sandoe Books, London. John Sandoe started this shop in 1957. Before that, these premises were partly devoted to the grooming of poodles. The other half was a junkshop, where books were sold by weight. In 1989 the shop was sold to members of staff. Since then, the business has grown and moved with the times, but it remains essentially the same — an independent literary bookshop with many regular customers. (Photo by Colin Grey)
