Covent Garden

These "people" umbrellas (Above) were in Octopus...a cute store with funky colored useful items (I think from France). The workers inside the store were interesting looking themselves...although I think they were dressed for Halloween. Anyway, back to the umbrellas. The handle is "boots" and they have heads. So folded, it looks like a doll or something. The one you can clearly see is the Alien, but the one I want is the red one, the head is decorated with black flapper hair and red lipstick. Real cute. I didn't impulse buy, it was 12 Pounds, so I decided to wait until towards the end of my trip to pick up some cutesy things. I already got a small change purse from Accessorize and a large prop up travel mirror from Boots.

Another shop I fancied (hee hee) was David & Goliath. I know we used to sell some of their stuff in Lord of The Fleas back in the day, so I refrained from buying anything. I later checked online and saw loads of things on sale, so I indulged a bit. Hey! At least I wasn't spending Brittish Pounds!!
