Within a week, I will be heading to London & Paris on a short vacation and would like to share a bit about my plans. Below are some mid century related stores I’m planning to visit in London. I learned a lot from these handy blogs. (via: hipshop, Shopikon, WeeBirdy) If I miss something, please drop me a line!
