Labour and Wait

As any chef, gardener, housekeeper, or DIY aficionado knows, good things come to those who wait, and even better things to those who labour and wait. Earlier this week I dropped into another great shop that I read about in The Traditional Shops and Restaurants of London: Labour and Wait. The shop has a clean, minimal feel and is stocked with practical tools for household tasks and general everyday life such as shaving sets, enamel measuring jugs, and metal watering cans. They also carry the infinitely useful ball of twine and twine stand. Labour and Wait left me daydreaming of a cottage kitchen with little a garden out back, both filled with functional, beautiful tools. Maybe it will do the same for you.
