What We Did

I had a great visit with my sister. She wanted to spend her time doing the things I like to do, rather than a lot of the standard touristy stuff, so we mostly strolled around neighborhoods and parks and markets. We had a great time. Here's a peek into our fun-filled sistah week. Above, she's on the left and I'm on the right.
Tulips at the Columbia Road flower market. One of my favorite markets. 
Outside Vintage Heaven on Columbia Road. We saw lots of street vintage--here, and Brick Lane, Spitalfields, and at the Portobello Road Market. And we went to a lot of pretty shops like the one below. It looked like you were walking into someone's house. We weren't even sure it was a store so we had to ask before we went in. I don't know the name of the place, but it was off of Columbia Road. 
Fish and chips. Had to have them at least once during her visit.
And we just spent a lot of time hanging out together, playing with Lois, drinking coffee, sipping wine, eating, hanging out with the hubbers, planting flowers in our tiny garden, getting my house straight. It was a lot of fun. We both left London yesterday for Atlanta. She's back home now, and we're back for a wedding in Charleston, SC and a short visit with our families in Atlanta. See you soon from Charleston!

Wow! Feels like we have very similar lives! My sis is here and we are doing my fav places too. Columbia Rd, Portobello, Brick Lane etc. I totally know that shop just off Coloumbia Rd, it's pretty amazing. Enjoy Atlanta.

I just discovered the Columbia Road Flower Market and surrounding shops with a friend in January (as well as Brick Lane and Spitalfields)—by far one of my favorite areas. I loved Vintage Heaven too, but missed the shop you mentioned—something for next time!
